The Halo Project objectives

 

The Halo Project supports resilient communities by engaging in healthy landscape development within the 55,000 hectares surrounding the Orokonui Ecosanctuary. Community health and wellbeing, lifestyle and economy are all dependent on a healthy natural environment, and it is this underlying principle that drives The Halo Project’s objectives to enhance our natural environment.  

The objectives of The Halo Project are to:

  • CONNECT PEOPLE TO THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT

    Connect people with nature and wise land use, encouraging stewardship and awareness of the natural environment that sustains us.

  • ENHANCE ECOSYSTEM HEALTH

    Manage the health of natural ecosystems, retaining and enhancing their capacity to sustain our communities.

  • PROTECT NATIVE PLANTS AND ANIMALS

    Protect and restore our indigenous biodiversity, cherishing the distinctive character of this area.

  • SUSTAIN LIVELIHOODS

    Support existing local economies and create livelihoods through community initiatives.
