Generations protecting our future wilderness

Protecting our rivers and streams take the whole community and Fish & Game is proud to be on the ground across New Zealand playing our part.
Part of the work is about ensuring future generations understand what lives in our freshwater and have the passion to protect it so initiatives like this visit by Te Kura O Take Kārara are important.
On November 9 the whole school of nearly 300 children visited Wishbone Falls on Mt Aspiring Station which flanks the Matukituki River.
Farmer Randall Aspinall helped children plant natives alongside a stream and Chris Arbuckle was on hand to teach them about the stream’s ecosystem helped by Damian Foster (Enviroschools) and Fish & Game’s David Priest and Mason Court.
Children who started coming to the area three years ago when the project started can see the results and the smallest children there on the day will have the chance to see the changes they are making for the better in years to come.
Fish & Game are on this journey with the children having supported the Wanaka Catchment Group project from the start with a Habitat Enhancement and Research Fund grant, and it is also supported by the Wai Ora project.
