BNZ Sponsored planting on Rotoroa Island
It was a great day out on the island with the BNZ team plus Kauri 2000 and the McCahon people. BNZ- thank you for making this possible.
It was a good opportunity to see the work being done on Rotoroa and to find ourselves planting trees with saddle backs and white heads flying around with takahe keeping an eye on things!
