Awakeri is a wetland area of boardwalks, green spaces, and waterways in Takaanini, South Auckland.
Children of Kauri Flats School, right next to Awakeri, have created a book about the wetlands. Working with teacher-writer, David Riley, the young people share stories and art celebrating their very own natural reserve.
“Put your hand in the water and feel it flow right through your hand.” (Saanvi)
“Our grandchildren attend the school and one of them, wrote a piece for the book. We have come to visit from the UK and are very impressed by what is taking place at this site. I will pass on the information about the project to others visiting NZ who might like to see it. Biodiversity net gain is now a very big issue for U.K. developers, with 10% net gain about to be made compulsory under the Environment Act 2021. Many thanks, Brian.
