Waingake Native Restoration
The Tairāwhiti Gisborne District is the first place in the world to see sunrise daily!
With One Tree Planted, we are supporting a two year project which aims to restore the native forest in this area, as it has experienced massive losses of ecosystems and biodiversity.
The project will create valuable additional habitat and provide a buffer of protection on the southern edges of Waingake Waterworks Bush from natural impacts such as wind damage and desiccation, to allow its long-term survival.
We expect to see significant natural regeneration of indigenous vegetation and the recovery of indigenous fauna, particularly forest birds due to improved habitat quality. Sweet as!
Key impact areas: ✔ Biodiversity ✔ Habitats ✔ Climate Stability ✔ Soil stability ✔ Erosion Control
