Restore Taranaki initiative

RESTORE TARANAKI’S VISION STATEMENT

Our vision is that, by 2050, Taranaki will be renewed.

The natural biodiversity is ourishing from land to sea due to the absence of invasive animal and plant pests. The freshwater owing through Taranaki’s many waterways is healthy and provides a safe, connected habitat for a diverse range of species.

This will encourage an abundant and varied range of native plants and animals on the mountain and hill country, along its forests, rivers, wetlands and coast.

The region is alive with bird song from dawn to dusk.

The environmental economy
is thriving in a highly productive landscape. Farming, industry and business are continually valued as signi cant income sources and as partners in a biologically rich and sustainable landscape.

Restore Taranaki is a community driven, collaborative initiative that seeks to protect and enhance native biodiversity in a range of ecosystems, linking existing initiatives, and connecting with local people and communities across the entire region.

The initiative, planned to be launched by Wild for Taranaki in 2018, seeks to create a new normal for the people of our region through:

  • Working with the community towards the removal of animal and plant pests as key ecosystem threats and providing a safe environment for native species,
  • Promoting best practice, exploring new technologies, testing different methods,
  • Actively building new partnerships in all corners of our community,
  • Attracting new resources and funds to support the region wide effort,
  • Supporting Wild for Taranaki members to sustain and grow their biodiversity projects; encouraging learning, sharing, and collaboration,
  • Nurturing the creation of new care groups and bringing biodiversity back to backyards,
  • Encouraging strategic coordination of education, advocacy and volunteers.
