The Role of Wetlands in the Ruamahanga CatchmentPublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
A majority of the wetlands in the Ruamahanga catchment are degraded from efforts to control flooding and create farmland. We collected perceptions of wetlands to the Wairarapa community from key stakeholders. We found strong connections to the wetlands and a wish for the same opportunities for generations to come. We also found that wetland restoration suffers from a lack of collaboration and incentives between community groups. We propose opportunities for collaboration, increasing education, and expanding incentives for restoration.
