A Unique Catchment

The Upper Taiari/Taieri Scroll plain in the beautiful Māniatoto basin is one of the most unique river environments in the Southern Hemisphere.

It's home to many rare and endangered native species and is an important traditional food-gathering site for Māori.

We Are...

A passionate group of landowners,

conservationists and river users united by a common cause -- the restoration and protection of the river catchment we love.

What We Do 

We assist landowners to fence and plant wetland and riparian areas. We also protect native fish habitat, enhance recreation areas and undertake weed control.
