Iwi and hapū aspirations for their freshwater fisheries are about to get a fresh boost, applications for Te Wai Māori Trust’s annual Wai Ora Fund are now open.
The Trust has made $200,000 available to help support iwi and hapū fulfil their aspirations for their freshwater fisheries.
- enhancing the health and wellbeing of the indigenous fisheries and their environment,
- promoting and sharing indigenous fisheries’ expertise, knowledge and understanding,
- increasing the quality and range of information to iwi and hapū on freshwater fisheries.
The Fund was established in 2012 and has since distributed over $2 million supporting more than 60 projects. It is a significant and meaningful part of the work that Te Wai Māori Trust delivers, supporting grassroots projects that make a difference to whānau and te taiao across Aotearoa.
