Sophie from Working Waters Trust lead KCC North Canterbury on a great kōwaro (mudfish) experience in May 2017.

These Kiwi Conservation Club kids have a message for the Government: “We need clean water, and so does nature. Your decisions affect our future.” If you agree with them, share this video.

KCC Waikato had a great trip to Mahoenui Giant Wētā Scientific Reserve. Here are some of the pictures taken during the visit. A big thank you to Erana and Antoinette at DoC Te Kuiti for hosting us.

With the release of the Clean Water package 2017, it looks like time to take this even further by making a submission to the government. There is a target of 90% of rivers and lakes swimmable by 2040, but… […]
This story was shared with us by Waikino School A few weeks ago, we lost one of our lovely kererū (wood pigeons) when she crashed into the wire nets surrounding our sports court. The kids were really upset, and the Room 3 children wanted to bury her under a kauri tree in our native area. We […]
