NZ RiverPrize 2015
Project Twin Streams was short listed as a finalist for the 2015 New Zealand Riverprize. The NZ Riverprize was open to applicants anywhere in the country who could demonstrate outstanding, visionary and sustainable programs in river management, restoration or protection – regardless of the size of the river of the scale of the project. Applicants were judged by an independent panel of experts in a range of river management fields.
The winner was be announced at the International Riversymposium in Brisbane and we extend our warmest congratulations to the winner the Aorere River Inititative – winner of NZ’s inaugural RiverPrize. Aorere, a farmer-led catchment project in the Tasman District, has worked hard to improve not only the health of the river and coastal environment but also created community cohesion by supporting both dairy and marine farmers to coexist in a sustainable way.
The competition was an amazing reflection of the innovation and ingenuity of New Zealanders facing a plethora of water related challenges and we are proud to have been counted among them as a finalist.
