Manawatu River Source to Sea Project
Within the Manawatū River Catchment, numerous community initiatives are underway to enhance watersheds, improve water quality, protect our local native flora and fauna, and conserve and extend habitat, collectively enhancing our terrestrial and aquatic biodiversity.
Since 2014/15 many of the groups involved in these initiatives, plus representatives of local government and DoC, farmers and members of the public have been coming together regularly as the Biodiversity Cluster, to network and share ideas, skills and resources, and to provide joint feedback to local and regional councils.
From these meetings a new and exciting community-led and catchment-wide initiative known as “Manawatū River Source to Sea” is developing. The intent is to bring together the many projects throughout the catchment which are working towards enhancing biodiversity, the health of rivers and the wellbeing of communities.
