Operation Tidy Fox

05/08/2019 at 8:00 am - 09/08/2019 at 5:00 pm

The Fox Landfill flooded in March. Rubbish and debris were strewn down the Fox and Cook Rivers, through nearby bush and onto West Coast beaches. Many of these precious landscapes are part of Te Wāhipounamu – South West New Zealand UNESCO World Heritage Area. The landfill breach has devastated the environment, and things could get worse with a serious impact on wildlife.

Conservation Volunteers New Zealand is supporting the Department of Conservation with this massive clean up effort by sending a team over from Christchurch on Monday 5th until Friday 9th August. Volunteers receive accommodation, lunch and dinner for each workday. If you would like transport and are interested in helping with this very important project then please make contact with me at hfairbairn@cvnz.org.nz or 021-399-040.

More information can be found here.
