If you’re planning a restoration project in the Wairarapa area, apply for our Community Environment Fund. Groups can receive up to $12,500.

The Wairarapa Moana Wetlands Project is a collaboration between Greater Wellington, the Department of Conservation, South Wairarapa District Council, Ngāti Kahungunu ki Wairarapa, and Rangitāne o Wairarapa. 

Our area includes Lakes Wairarapa and Ōnoke, their neighbouring wetlands, Lake Domain, the Wairarapa Lake Shore Scenic Reserve and Ōnoke Spit. Lake Wairarapa is the third largest lake in the North Island.

At the heart of our partnership is a mutual desire to restore our wetland treasure; whakaora te repo ka ora te taonga wai­.

We want to help mana whenua and community groups with restoration efforts and native plant nurseries.
