The Bellbirds Chime In
Recently we were privileged to be one of the key signatories of the Banks Peninsula 2050 Predator Free Initiative and Living Springs was featured on TVNZ One News on Sunday Nov, 4. You can here the report here https://youtu.be/lN_2WIyVN0U
Along with key personnel from DOC, Ecan, Christchurch City Council, Banks Peninsula Iwi, Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust and others we gathered in the Living Springs amphitheater for this historic event. It was the perfect setting and keynote speaker and Conservation Minister Eugine Sage, enthusing about this special place among the Mahoe, noted how she would love to see parliament convene in such a therapeutic space. And then right on cue in the midst of the signing ceremony the bell birds chimed in as if to register their approval.
A number of predator control workshops followed in the Peter Morrow auditorium with about sixty people participating.
It was a special day in a special place and we believe a landmark day for both Living Springs and for the people of Banks Peninsula.
