17 Feb Australasia Riverprize – 2015 Aorere
Winner: Aorere River | New Zealand
The Aorere River Initiative won the New Zealand Riverprize in 2015, which was sponsored by the Morgan Foundation.
The Aorere River Initiative is a farmer-led catchment project aimed at improving the river following serious bacterial contamination from dairy farms in the region. The Initiative has not only improved the ecological health of the river and coastal environment but also helped to created community cohesion between dairy farmers and marine farmers—whose mussel and cockle farms are directly impacted by the state of the river.
