This year’s 17 awards are all tremendous examples of the Taranaki can-do attitude and highlight the innovation and practical environmentalism that’s a strong part of the regional culture.

They are leaders in ecological restoration in the region and their achievements are worthy of celebration, contributing to maintaining and improving our healthy environment and biodiversity.

We’re a region of people who walk the talk. We see what needs to be done, and we get stuck in and do it. This is the spirit that makes the region what it is.

So congratulations to our winners, and to all the others out there working hard to make Taranaki an even better place.
