Save my family's bush
Protect family's rainforest for the futureWest Coast
Nau mai, haere mai
My mother is selling the bush my family had when I was a small child, because she needs the money. My dream is to buy the land back so the family can enjoy the forest in generations to come.
This 32-acre piece of forest on the West Coast near Greymouth is now protected by a QE2 Covenant, however a small part of the land is not protected. I feel it is my duty to protect every part of this beautiful rainforest. Caring for the forest and ensuring the covenant is respected, would be my ongoing life-purpose, should the forest be saved for our family.
The birdlife and birdsong is so beautiful and prolific that this is no doubt one of the most precious parts of our natural heritage in New Zealand. My mission would be to work to protect the bush into the future and to educate future members of my family to do likewise.
This forest is sacred to our family. I could never afford to buy the property myself. This land means more than money to me, it is my whole reason for existence.
If we manage to save the land, future generations of our family will be able to enjoy this special place.
Any koha/ contribution to help fund this project, large or small, is appreciated so much.
Use of funds
The funds will allow future generations of our family to enjoy the bush.
