Website promotes green work
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.
