Enhancing the Life and Character of our Estuaries
Tasman undertakes education and advocacy via workshops and events to promote successful estuarine habitat restoration, and workshops on reducing sediment discharges from site developments. Additionally the use of regulation to place controls to ensure sustainable development and where necessary exclusion.
Many opportunities exist for restoring biodiversity, landscape and amenity values. While as yet there are no formal restoration plans for our estuaries, the following document has some useful pointers.
Learn about estuarine restoration and consider re-establishing the natural sequence of vegetation from the inter-tidal area to well above the high tide mark. Join a CoastCare group – it is more fun and there is a better result with the combined expertise.
Consider building hides for bird-watching.
