Iwi projects in Tai Tokerau have been boosted by small grants from Northland Regional Council’s $1.25 million environment fund.

The fund typically covers up to half a project’s cost, with landowners covering the rest through labour, other funding sources, or in kind contributions such as materials.

An iwi-led project to control introduced pest and weeds on the Kowhairoa peninsula in Whangaroa, with the aim of eventually reintroducing kiwi, was given $14,000.

Te Roroa got $10,000 to control wil ginger over about 900 hectares of iwi land next to the Waipoua Forest.

There was also money set aside to improve water quality and protect wetlands on Landcorp’s Rangiputa Station in the far north.

TVNZ Journalist blames Māori, not Oranga Tamariki.
OPINION - Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: TVNZ Journalist Jehan Casinader, has written a remarkably shallow evaluation of the corrosive Orange Tamariki child uplift programme and has bewilderingly concluded the problem is Māori, not the policy.
