Project Mōhua is a Golden Bay volunteer initiative set up to help enable groups throughout Golden Bay to come together, collaborate and achieve great outcomes for the environment and conservation. Project Mōhua is in its infancy but aspires to help with project planning, finding volunteers, accessing funding applications, enabling networking, accessing resources (traps, monitoring tools, plants, etc.) or through publicity via our website and facebook.
No one understands the importance of environmental protection and conservation in Golden Bay better than those who live, work and play here. So whether you or your group are currently involved, keen to do more, or simply have an idea to share we hope Project Mōhua will provide a chance to network, share your aspirations and skillsets, or have your say as we work towards the big picture goals for Golden Bay. If you are involved in a freshwater enhancement project check out potential funding available through Golden Bay Stream Care and Cobb Mitigation Fund.
Project Mōhua consists of the Project Mōhua Management Group (PMMG) a diverse group of Golden Bay people who are passionate to see community conservation thrive in Golden Bay. The PMMG operates under the umbrella of Tasman Environmental Trust (TET) benefiting from TET's established governance and reputation. It is also supported in an advisory capacity by Tasman District Council and Department of Conservation. However, to ensure Project Mōhua is a Golden Bay initiative all decisions remain with PMMG members and within the Golden Bay community.
