OUR ENVIRONMENT

The move towards an Eco-Sanctuary on this unique 420 hectare property is an evolving one and had its inception forty years ago with a number of comprehensive tree planting programmes in the early years of Living Springs.

 

There has been a considerable momentum shift in recent years with the Allandale Stream Restoration programme beginning in 2011 and then enlarging to include the ‘Plant a Hundred Totaras’ initiative and “Predator Free Allandale” concept in 2013/14. Out of this base in 2014 began to emerge the idea of a Living Springs Eco – Sanctuary. 

 

Today Living Springs is preparing to plant another 7500 native trees between winter 2018 – 2020 alongside formalising plans for the Ecosanctuary.  Support through donations and volunteer labour are needed.  Ask the staff about Corporate Responsibility packages to enable your company to partner with this project.
