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.

National's 'alternative facts' when it comes to Water quality
MARTYN 'BOMBER' BRADBURY: It seems that with the Government's bold claim of making 90% of NZs rivers 'swimmable' by 2040, is more like Donald Trump's 'alternative facts' than true care about the state of our polluted rivers and lakes.
Wily Willie could be election decider.
PAUL MOON: It was all going so well. The Maori Party looked revitalised, and heading into election year could claim successes in its flagship Whanau Ora programme, as well as being part of a government that has concluded some of the most important Treaty settlements in a generation.
