Dr. Jane Goodall visiting Te Motu Kairangi-Miramar ecological restoration
We had the honour and privilege to have Dr. Jane Goodall visiting Te Motu Kairangi-Miramar ecological restoration. Her lifelong work with restoration and conservation is a huge inspiration to us, and we were lucky enough to show her some of the work we have done here over the last 9 years.
Together with some of our amazing and hard working volunteers, students from Worser bay school and from Janes own Roots and Shoots program, we walked part of the track, looked into our weta hotels and inspected some of our planting sites.
In a sunny gap in the canopy, Jane planted a kohekohe tree (Dysoxylum spectabile). She named it Treebeard.
We hope it will grow tall, live long and provide shelter and food for the native wildlife.
"Every individual matters. Every individual has a role to play. Every individual makes a difference." - Jane Goodall
Thank you Jane.
