Te Hiku iwi met with the Minister of Conservation, Hon Kiritapu Allan, who has connections to the North through the Murray whānau, yesterday to discuss the Kaimahi for Nature program and the work already being undertaken by iwi in conservation matters. 

The Kaimahi for Nature is part of the Jobs for Nature programme which funds work with councils, iwi and local businesses to provide nature-based jobs both on and off public land.

Iwi leadership from Ngāi Takoto, Te Aupōuri and Te Rarawa took the opportunity to showcase the work happening on the ground in the rohe, outlining their environmental strategies and their aspirations for rangatahi to reconnect with the whenua.
