Funding for Te Awarua-o-Porirua Harbour Catchment

The Te Awarua-o-Porirua Harbour Catchment Restoration Fund was created to support groups restoring, maintaining or enhancing native vegetation of areas around the Porirua Harbour catchment. It funds some important work restoring natural habitats in their backyards.

It is hoped that this fund will enable groups to:

• Improve the health of the native ecosystems around the catchment area

• Reduce the amount of soil getting into streams and the harbour

• Involve others in their restoration work

• Spread the message that native ecosystems, such as those in and around Te Awarua-o-Porirua Harbour, are in important areas to be protected and cherished

The fund can support up to three years of restoration work and is open for applications in September. The fund is available to all community groups looking to help restore and protect the biodiversity of the beautiful Te Awarua-o-Porirua Harbour and its catchment.
