Waipa Post - - Front Page -

Two lo­cal ini­tia­tives are fi­nal­ists for the same award in the New Zealand Biose­cu­rity Awards.

Piron­gia Te Aroaro o Kahu Restora­tion So­ci­ety and Sanc­tu­ary Moun­tain Maun­gatau­tari are both up to win the De­part­ment of Con­ser­va­tion Com­mu­nity Award.

They are among 19 award fi­nal­ists in seven cat­e­gories.

Win­ners will be an­nounced at an event on Mon­day, Novem­ber 12 in Auck­land.

The awards started two years ago to recog­nise and cel­e­brate ex­em­plary con­tri­bu­tions to pro­tect­ing New Zealand’s nat­u­ral re­sources.

A Min­is­te­rial award recog­nis­ing a con­tri­bu­tion to biose­cu­rity over many years will be awarded on the night.
