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.
Support existing local economies and create livelihoods through community initiatives.
Currently, the Halo Project is focused on activities in the areas of predator control, forest and seabird habitat restoration and freshwater enhancement. Click on a project circle below to read more about them:
