Building healthy neighbourhoods by increasing the greenery in our community and promoting green urban development is good for people, business and the environment.
Joined by key partners Department of Conservation, Taupo District Council, , Waikato Regional Council, Greening Taupo has moved from concept to reality and together we are calling for the entire Taupo community to get behind the initiative. With collaboration from the community, Greening Taupo can create a sustainable future for our environment for generations to enjoy.
In its simplest form, the goal of the Greening Taupo is to attempt to replicate the conservation work occurring within the Wairakei Golf + Sanctuary, beyond to the surrounding Taupo area, so that birds that spread out from the sanctuary are not killed by introduced predators and thrive. To achieve this, an increase in native forest habitat and a reduction in predators are fundamental.
Greening Taupo is based around collaboration and involvement as well as buy in from the community to ensure we create a sustainable future for our environment for generations to enjoy.
