Rotorua Duck Tours has joined with Tipu Waiariki for native tree planting, on Tarawera Road to the Blue Lake
Rotorua Duck Tours is super excited to announce that we have joined forces with Tipu Waiariki for a native tree planting initiative.
Planting native trees can be a great way to restore local ecosystems and support biodiversity. By planting native trees on Tarawera Road on the way to the Tikitapu (Blue Lake) we hope to help enhance the scenic beauty of the area and provide an additional habitat for native wildlife.
The initiative will also contribute to the overall health and well-being of the environment, including water quality as well as help mitigate the effects of climate change. This effort will make a significant impact to the environment and will lead to positive outcomes for the environment and the local community.
This is something that we were super excited by. Rotorua Duck Tours has contributed $1 for every person that rides on our Tarawera & Lakes Eco experience and this was being matched by Tipu Wai. While the collection of funds began in January 2023, planting did not occur until August 2023. So far a seven thousand native trees and plants have been planted which will eventually have a significant impact on the area, promoting biodiversity, enhancing natural beauty, and potentially aiding in erosion control. In a few years time this area will look fantastic.
While this process has been a success Rotorua Duck Tours will continue to work with Tipu Waiariki Charitable Trust to work on other projects to enhance the natural environment.
Tipu Wai is a tree-planting initiative based in Rotorua, New Zealand, is focused on the restoration and preservation of the local ecosystem. The initiative aims to plant native trees and shrubs in the region, in order to support the local flora and fauna, protect soil and water resources, and help mitigate the impacts of climate change.
Tipu Waiariki works in partnership with local communities, organizations, and businesses to implement its projects, and its tree-planting activities are open to volunteers from the public.
By planting native trees and shrubs, Tipu Waiariki is helping to re-establish the local ecosystem, provide habitats for native species, and enhance the region’s natural beauty. The initiative is an important part of Rotorua’s efforts to promote sustainability, conserve its natural resources, and protect its unique environment for future generations.
If you want to help with this initiative, then please contact Tipu Waiariki directly.
