Organisation: Environment River Patrol (ERP-A)
Title of Project: Restoration of Mangere and Wairua Rivers

This project focuses on the restoration of Mangere and Wairua Rivers to protect the habitat and fisheries from the impacts of unfenced farming and population.  During the past five years ERP-A has created its own reporting structure to the Northland Regional Council (NRC) on environmental issues in the rohe of Te Urioroi, Te Parawhau and Te Mahurehure hapū.  Many of the reports are on the effects of unfenced cattle on waterways.  The reports are used to influence NRC decision making and have resulted in more than 300km of fencing erected within the Northland region.
