Strategic Plan for Puahanui Bush

IMG 7644

On Tuesday 15 September Gwavas Charitable Trust presented their ten year strategic plan for Puahanui Bush at Gwavas in Central Hawke's Bay. 

The vision for Puahanui Bush is to restore and enhance the indigenous flora and fauna so that all native plants and animals characteristic of a lowland podocarp forest are present and flourishing. Many species in decline elsewhere still exist in Puahanui Bush. Just behind the homestead the 132- hectare lowland podocarp forest is a significant biodiversity landmark in Hawke’s Bay. Preserved by the Carlyon and Hudson families it is the largest tract, and one of the best representative remnants, of this forest type remaining within the surrounding ecological districts of Heretaunga, Eastern HB, Maungaharuru, Ruahine and Eastern Wairarapa.
