Restoring an entire region is a big job.

Restoring an entire region is a big job. That is why we need the help and support of everyone in Taranaki. We are not talking about the need to do it alone, you do not have to undertake a monumental conservation project.

But if each of us takes care of our own backyards, then we can have a huge impact together as a community. There are many ways that the smallest child and the biggest business can make a difference.

Here are some small things that you can start doing today:

  • Walk, run or ride instead of driving
  • Wash your car on the lawn instead of your driveway
  • Keep your curbside drains clear of rubbish
  • Buy less products wrapped in plastic
  • Colour your backyard with native plants
  • Pick up rubbish you see at the beach
  • Recycle your plastic, cans, paper and cardboard
