New Zealand's Nature Capital
As part of a competition between communities, Glenside and Crofton Downs have each received a $5000 grant from the Enhancing the Halo programme toward making their respective communities predator free.
'Enhancing The Halo' aims to make Wellington New Zealand's natural capital by making all back yards into safe havens for native wildlife. Wellington already has a number of wildlife hotspots (like Zealandia, Otari-Wilton Bush and Oruaiti Reserve) and now it is time to restore the full dawn chorus (which most New Zealanders have never heard) and see wings over all of Wellington.
We are honoured to be selected to receive a grant and look forward to 'enhancing the halo' in Glenside.
