Efforts to replant Takaparawha-Bastion Point and an iwi ranger for pest-free Moturoa Island in the Hauraki Gulf are among nine community-led conservation projects in the Auckland area to receive funding.

Conservation Minister Maggie Barry says more than $291,000 from the DOC Community Fund is going into projects to continue the War on Weeds, protect historic Maori sites, complete kiwi transfers and carry out pest control work.

The biggest grant of $50,000 will go to towards the Moturoa iwi ranger, who will help coordinate weed control programmes, promote iwi-led conservation initiatives and maintain the bio-security of the island.

Another $25,000 is going to the Restoring Mauri: Whenua Rangatira project on New Zealand’s first co-governed public park created under the Orakei Act 1991.

Ms Barry says it’s an example of urban conservation that reflects tikanga Maori.

The fear of admitting our Prison and Justice system is racist
MARTYN 'BOMBER' BRADBURY: The fear that seems to underpin so many of those voices attacking the Waitangi Tribunal's response that the failure to lower Maori incarceration and reoffending amounts to a Treaty breach needs to be acknowledged.

MARTYN 'BOMBER' BRADBURY: If we look at the opinion poll stats 6 months out from the last 3 elections, National over poll by a significant percentage, Labour over poll by a smaller percentage, the Greens are static and NZ First rises when Labour's vote collapses.
