From the
President

Spring is here again and the wetlands are bursting into life with fresh plant growth and increasing breeding activity among the birds.

This was well illustrated recently when I visited James and Jane Hunter’s property at Porangahau, Central Hawke’s Bay. They are DU members and recently received a grant from DU Wetland Care Trust to assist with the construction of a complex of five dams along a swampy gully. Passionate wetland conservationists; they typify what DU is about. 

This on-going interest from private landowners and support from DU is vital for wetlands and waterfowl. Read more about their achievements elsewhere in this issue.
