Parihaka Community Landcare

Parihaka Community Landcare in Whangarei has received $1,570 to purchase 100 rat traps and 100 protective wooden covers to enhance its pest management activities on Parihaka.

They are a volunteer group which helps protect the native species in Parihaka by reducing pest populations.

Parihaka is a 389 hectare podocarp-broadleaf and kauri forest in the heart of Whangarei and is one of the city’s most recognisable and iconic landmarks. The maunga enjoys a rich cultural history, and is utilised by many sectors of the community, and supports a diverse range of flora and fauna.
