Previous Grants in Thames Coromandel
Last year we gave nearly $200,000 to eight Coromandel projects.
That included nearly $40K to the Coromandel Independent Living Trust to set up a nursery to grow eco-sourced native plants for local projects and to train up local rangitahi.
We also funded plant and animal pest management and restoration work at Whiritoa, Tuateawa, McGregor Bay, Rings Beach, Long Bay and Kapowai Valley.
