Hawke's Bay Today - - Local News -

A brightly coloured shed will be used by Hawke’s Bay Re­gional Coun­cil to ed­u­cate peo­ple vis­it­ing the A&P show about di­ver­sity. Hawke’s Bay Artist Cin­zah Merkens painted the Na­ture Shed, for­mally home of the Ac­cli­ma­ti­sa­tion So­ci­ety. His mu­ral, TeKaiti­aki, fea­tures na­tive New Zealand an­i­mals, a tuna (eel), a ruru (more­pork ), a tu¯¯ı and puriri moth. Dur­ing show week, a model will show how to en­hance bio­di­ver­sity and pro­duc­tiv­ity in the ru­ral land­scape. Hawke’s Bay Re­gional Coun­cil bio­di­ver­sity ad­viser Natalie de Burgh said the coun­cil was look­ing for­ward to see­ing peo­ple visit the Na­ture Shed and teach­ing them how to help pro­tect na­tive crea­tures and their habi­tats.
