Runanga encourage waterway and ecosystems restoration
A Banks Peninsula runanga is encouraging people to get stuck in and restore waterways and native ecosystems.
Te Runanga o Koukourarata and neighbouring farmer Tim Coop have secured a $22,400 Immediate Steps grant from the multi-agency Banks Peninsula Zone Committee to fence and plant land alongside Koukourarata Stream at Port Levy.
Project manager Peter Ramsden says it's one of a number of projects the runanga is pursuing as it tries to counter decades of damage, as well as cleaning up the effects of recent storms.
