ORUAWHARO MEDLANDS ECOVISION
Oruawharo Bay is located on the Eastern coast of Great Barrier Island. It is a small settlement, centred around a long white sandy surf beach named Medlands. In 2018, a handful of local residents formed “Oruawharo Medlands Ecovision” (OME) a biodiversity focused ecological restoration project. This was achieved with the guidance and support of the Aotea Ecology Vision.

In addition to the trapping program, OME has begun investigating ecologically significant sites including the Oruawharo Stream at the South end of the beach and the wetland area in behind the houses at the Northern end. These are areas that the group believe would benefit from restoration projects including replanting, weed suppression, water quality monitoring and further pest control
OME welcomes anyone interested in receiving their regular newsletters or who wishes to become involved by way of helping out with project work, community planting days etc to contact them via email email@example.com You can also like and follow their Facebook Page “Oruawharo Medlands Ecovision“ to stay up to date with activities.
