Waingake Programme - Te Mana o Te Wai

The combined restoration planting, weed control and pest control components of the programme will aid in the protection of highly erodible land in the headwaters of 3 significant catchments:

  • Te Arai
  • Mangapoike
  • Nuhaka

Establishing permanent indigenous cover in these catchments and removing pest species provides an integrated approach to reducing sediment, lifting water quality, restoring mauri and upholding Te Mana o Te Wai.
