Nelson Nature project gets lift off – how about a similar vision for the Kapiti Coast?

A $6 million 10-year project dedicated to protecting and restoring Nelson’s environment was officially launched at the Suter Gallery today.

Nelson City Council’s Nelson Nature programme of work invests $500,000 a year, increasing to $650,000 by year five plus inflation, in the region’s biodiversity

“Through Nelson Nature, we want our city to become a national leader in environmental restoration, renowned for its native flora and fauna – with obvious economic spin offs for tourism,”.
