Te Kākahu Kahukura MOU Signing

Living Springs hosted the Te Kākahu Kahukura MoU signing last week, with 18 partner organisation, including the Rod Donald Trust, being signatories to this exciting initiative.

Māui Stuart from Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke was MC for the event

Te Kākahu Kahukura is a large scale collaboration of landowners, residents, organisations and agencies whose vision is to see the Southern Port Hills area become a thriving and resilient indigenous forest supporting native flora and fauna by 2050; a taonga for Ōtautahi. Natural regeneration, restoration planting, targeted enrichment planting of podacarps, and collaborative animal and plant pest control are all important parts of the programme.

ECAN councillor Lam Pham speaks at the event, with Maury Leyland (landowner), Penny Carnaby (BPCT) and Māui Stuart (Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke) watching on.
