In 2017, 76 percent of our native freshwater fish were either threatened with or at risk of extinction. By adopting a drain and improving stormwater management, we can safeguard precious biodiversity like endangered freshwater fish and tuna, long-fin eel.
Help us develop our engagement programme so that together we can create safe and healthy habitats for our most endangered species!
Donate today to help communities adopt a drain and save the endangered species that rely on healthy waterways to survive.
Your donation will help to:
Develop an education programme to educate tamariki and the public so we can better understand how drain systems work, and why we need to restore the health of our waterways for endangered species.
Produce education packs - with all the tools needed to "Adopt a Drain"
Create fact sheets and videos about endangered species and what needs to be done to restore their habitats
Reconnect people to te taiao, our environment and the ways we can all contribute to healthy biodiversity.
