20 July – Working Bee with Zealandia

Working Bee at Cummings Park today – POSTPONED.

Due to the weather – the call has been made to postpone this event to a later date when we can expect the weather to be better. Our apologies if this has affected your plans today!

“When was the last time you heard the intricate melody of a tūī’s song? What about the sharp shriek of a kākā?

If recently, that means all is going according to plan. Wellington is one of the few cities in the world where native bird numbers are increasing, and this isn’t by chance. For decades, local organisations have been hard at work enhancing the mouri or biodiversity lifeforce of Wellington and these efforts are clearly paying off.

In particular, Zealandia Te Māra a Tāne has just entered the second generation of our 500-year plan — Living with Nature, Tiako Taiao, Tiaki Tangata. This next generation is focused on extending the biodiversity ‘halo’ from outside the large ecosanctuary fence and bringing people and nature together once again. We have a new name for this project — Kia Mouriora te Kaiwharawhara, otherwise known as Sanctuary to Sea.

Local businesses, restoration groups, residents associations, and organisations have answered nature’s call for support. You too can help nature thrive by getting involved in environmental initiatives near you. 

Join us Saturday, 20 July 11:00am – 2:00pm at Cummings Park for a community working bee to enhance the native bush planted by Railway Roopu Cumming Park. This event will be held in conjunction with Zealandia Te Māra a Tāne and Ngaio Crofton Downs Residents Association. You can RSVP on Facebook (see the event at Ngaio Working Bee or by emailing Nate at sanctuarytosea@visitzealandia.com.
