The Lower Mangapiko Streamcare Group is a great example of a group that has involved a variety of others with their riparian planting. Work first began on the stream in 2006 and now 34km out of a possible 41km (both sides of stream) has been restored.
Feral pigs can do a lot of damage to native vegetation, bird life and insect life and some community groups are trying to tackle the problem in their patch to reduce the impact on the flora and fauna they are protecting.
