Open Valley Urban Ecosanctuary

$0 donated
Created 3 years ago

We're creating a open urban ecosanctuary in the Valley to make a safe habitat for native wildlife in for community.


The Open Urban Ecosanctuary Project (Open VUE) seeks to utilise the unique spatial structure of North East Valley as a defined catchment area for Lindsay Creek, and as a green corridor with the potential to link the Dunedin Town Belt with the Orokonui Ecosanctuary. Open VUE will build on the very strong sense of local community identity, and the sound administrative base provided by the existing Valley Project. Open VUE aims to engage with partners to undertake a comprehensive programme focused on community engagement in green space enhancement and pest control through biodiversity mapping, species monitoring and environmental education. Drawing on the experience of established community ecosanctuaries we aim to be a model for other community projects.

About us

We're a community led development project. Together with our community, we aim to enhance the life of the North East Valley community, particularly as it promotes the wellbeing of local children and their families and whanau.

Use of funds

Funds will be used for education and materials to see this vision into a reality. Funds for Open VUE are managed by the Valley Project, with spending decided through consensus with our community steering committee.
