Conservation funds welcome your donation...

The Team from Momentum Waikato

Many people want to volunteer for conservation work, but more money is always needed to resource the labour offered.

Which is why there are three conservation-focused philanthropic investment funds at Momentum Waikato - donations grow ongoing income for local activities.

The Fund for Nature Hauraki-Coromandel support includes kiwi protection, trap building and training.

The Waikato Catchment Ecological Enhancement Fund supplies plants and pest control kit.

The Waikato Hauraki Conservation Fund is a ‘gap filler’ for things that volunteers need that are not usually funded.

What's your favourite piece of Waikato history?

Libby Totton Reporter from Waikato Times

Car parks inspired a milking shed design that took off around the world and became a piece of Waikato District history.

A hundred-year-old church and gravestones from the 1880s will also feature as the district turns the spotlight on its past for its first Heritage Day on April 20.
