Replant for Tomorrow - Taranaki
Replant Taranaki saw us partner with Asplundh and Wild for Taranaki to redress the vegetation loss and help restore Taranaki’s biodiversity. In 2021, employees from Powerco, Asplundh and Wild for Taranaki headed out to Omoana (located east of Eltham) to plant 2500 trees in the reserve.
In 2021 and 2022, we’re also contributing funding and staff to assist in the Waiwhaikaiho Restoration, to restore the ecological corridor of Waiwhakaiho River from Taranaki Maunga to the sea. The area is of particular significance to the local hapū whose tūpuna (ancestors) used the Waiwhakaiho for ceremonies, customary practices and kai. Over the years, habitat modification, loss of wetlands, water abstraction and poor fisheries management have led to the physical and spiritual decline of the river. Through planting, weed control, fencing and pest eradication we hope to help restore the habitat and improve migratory fish flow.
