Braided Rivers Project

We have now decided that the Braided Rivers Project is our next challenge. It is ambitious and exciting. By extending predator control alongside the Dart and Rees rivers that flow from the Routeburn and Dart valleys into Lake Wakatipu at Glenorchy we can protect five bird species that use the rivers as habitat and also link to Project Routeburn and Project Rock Wren as well as with other existing predator control projects.  Our vision of a predator free zone from Martin’s Bay to Lake Wakatipu is possible – from the ‘ocean to the lake’. Our next steps are to get a detailed scoping report, plan our fund raising and finalise our business plan.
