We listen to the land

We listen to the land

From native forests, to farms, from fresh water to flood risks, biodiversity and beyond. We listen to the land closely, keenly, and provide what’s needed to protect our region’s precious taiao (environment). If we don’t listen, we’ll lose what we have and what might be. Whakarongo Tātou ki te Whenua.
