Web­site pro­motes green work

Kapi-Mana News - - GARDENING -

More than 60 groups have so far signed up to the new Na­ture Space web­site which was launched ear­lier this month.

Sought by con­ser­va­tion vol­un­teers who are in­creas­ingly seek­ing on­line sup­port, the web­site al­lows groups and in­di­vid­u­als to store and share data, pro­mote their ef­forts and find use­ful re­sources. It has been launched by the Depart­ment of Con­ser­va­tion’s Welling­ton Hawke’s Bay Con­ser­vancy, lower North Is­land coun­cils and WWF New Zealand.

‘‘Na­ture Space pro­vides a great set of ‘how-to’ re­sources for our vol­un­teers across all of our projects,’’ says Peter Cooper of Rimu­taka For­est Park Char­i­ta­ble Trust.

Sto­ries are ro­tated on the home page, invit­ing peo­ple to read about restora­tion achieve­ments and an in­ter­ac­tive map pin­points project lo­ca­tions for peo­ple want­ing to join. Na­ture Space also links to a wealth of on­line re­sources.

The Na­ture Space web­site can be viewed at na­tures­pace.org.nz.
