World Wetland Day

2 February 2008 -- DoC organised the Southland event this year, tying it in with the opening of the Waituna boardwalk and the recent interpretation panels erected in the shelter.

Janice Kevern, WLG Chairperson and Roger McNaughton, Awarua/Waituna Community Advisory Group Chairperson, jointly cut the ribbon and declared the walkway officially opened.

Green Party MP Metiria Turei joined in the celebration.

She has been a driver in the gaining of the central government funds that are going towards the work that is being undertaken in the Awarua/Waituna wetland complex to ensure the health of this Ramsar site into the future.

The day was an opportunity for the new WLG display panels to be used, enabling locals and visitors both to learn about the projects that the WLG is involved with.
