The AKV Mission
The Trust's mission has four major parts:
- Water - clean water in Kaikorai Stream to the sea
- Plants - replace weeds with native plants and significant trees
- Predators - remove predators from our valley
- Birds - look after our precious birds
We see AKV as a vehicle to work with business and community groups to help facilitate the general overall health and improvement of the valley environment
- The cleanest water possible to Kaikorai Estuary
- Elimination of pest plants such as ivy, gorse and broom
- Replacing pest plants with native and significant trees to enhance these areas
- Eliminate predators and attract native birds into the valley by getting a trap in every commercial and residential property in the valley
It is a long term project where small incremental changes will help bring these goals to fruition. Change will come from awareness, education and action. If we can gather enough people motivated to dovetail into the great work already being done we can make a difference.
