Bringing a Slice of Nature to Your Property
Have you dreamed of being visited by kereru, hearing the calls of tui and bellbirds, or having resident quail and pheasants? Perhaps you want to protect a stand of native bush or enhance a pond for ducks and other wetland birds, or simply do something to offset your carbon footprint?
Many rural and semi-rural properties have patches of scrub, forest remnants, wet or boggy gullies, or difficult-to-manage areas that could be developed into attractive habitat. These areas might be quite small on any one property, but collectively, and in a broader landscape context, can provide significant opportunities for both plants and animals, and stepping stones for their movement from one area to another.
Wildlands helps landowners to identify the potential in their properties, and develop plans for restoring natural values and enhancing forest and wetland remnants, no matter how small or large. Plans are tailored to the needs and goals of individual landowners, and can address such things as how to control weeds, how to create a wetland if feasible to do so, what to plant, and how best to control rats and stoats, and other pests. In addition to preparing prescriptions and work plans, Wildlands can sometimes help landowners to find funding and, if requested, can undertake the physical works.
