Wrapping up 2022
2022 has been a bustling year here at WAI Wānaka. Protecting our beautiful lakes and rivers would not be possible without your support. From generous donations, to volunteering, to following WAI’s journey and sharing our mahi with others, your help truly makes a difference. We want to take this time to say a huge THANK YOU to our incredible community, partners, followers and volunteers.
Here’s to another year of working together towards healthy ecosystems and community wellbeing for future generations.

Amplifying Action for 2023
Whilst reflecting back on a great year, we’re also looking forward to working with our community to achieve great things in 2023.
Knowledge into Action for Te Taiao will explore the weaving of knowledges for land use options that revitalise te Taiao and lead to market and value chain opportunities. Alongside our Jobs for Nature field team, this programme aims to work with land owners and land managers throughout Upper Clutha to achieve positive environmental outcomes within sustainable businesses.
We will once again be collaborating with other local environmental groups to showcase the amazing mahi within our basin under the banner of Our Place at the Wānaka A&P Show.
Urban action groups, such as The Young Environmental Collective (yo.eco), continue to grow their impact within the community and have set exciting objectives for the new year.
We look forward to working with you all again in 2023 to accelerate local action for our fresh water.
