North-west Wild Link Assistance Programme

Create a haven for wildlife in your backyard


The current round of funding for this programme has finished.

If you live in the Hibiscus and Bays local board area and your property is within 20m of a stream you may be eligible for free advice and support via the North-west Wild Link Assistance Programme.

The Kaipatiki Project Environment Centre are partnering with the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board to support private landowners to care for our waterways and restore stream habitats which are important green corridors for our native fish, birds and other wildlife.
