[1] Nikau Foundation grant for Wairio Wetland

A cheque for $6500 from the Nikau Foundation was handed over to Ducks Unlimited (DUNZ) President
Ross Cottle and Patron Jim Campbell by Gus van de Roer of the Nikau Foundation to go towards the
restoration of the Wairio Wetland.

Nikau Foundation Chairman Kevin O’Connor said he was delighted the Foundation was able to support
Ducks Unlimited with its restoration work at the Wairio Wetland on the eastern shore of Lake Wairarapa.

While most grants had previously gone to Wellington based organisations he added that the Wairarapa
is part of the wider community supported by the Foundation.

Ross Cottle said the grant would go towards site preparation and tree planting at the joint venture
project with DOC.

“We are starting to see the results of four years of effort and this injection of funds will help maintain
the momentum of the project,” said Ross.

Tree planting is planned for May/June and volunteers are welcome. In past years children from Pirinoa
Primary School, students from the Taratahi Agricultural Training Centre, Rotarians and DU and F&B members have assisted with the planting.

Nikau Foundation is the community foundation for the Wellington region, part of a worldwide family that
provides a simple, effective and long-lasting way for people to leave a gift for causes close to their
heart and close to home. Because the capital is invested and only the income is given out, the gift
keeps on giving forever.

The grant for the Wairio Wetland restoration project has been arranged by Nikau on behalf of the
Richard and Doreen Evans Trust.
