On June 8th, we are lucky to have Joshua Forrest, from the Fish Passage team, Greater Wellington Regional Council (GWRC) talking to us about his work with the Kaiwharawhara Stream. The stream and its tributaries are an important part of our area, and give us one of our taonga – Trelissick Park.
GWRC are undertaking a programme of work to reduce fish passage barriers and Kaiwharwhara Stream is aselected catchment. Mitigating the barriers will see more fish naturally reaching the higher reaches of the waterways.
Josh will discuss the work of his team, highlighting their engagement with the Kaiwharawhara through his
role as Kaiāpiha Papa Atawhai / Biodiversity Ranger – Fish Passage.
