Project Janszoon is a privately funded initiative working in partnership with DOC to help the ecological restoration of the Abel Tasman National Park.
The Project is focused on halting the current ecological decline resulting from weed and animal pest incursions in the Park and taking the necessary steps to set the Park’s ecology on a path to recovery.
The Project will maintain the control of pests, support the reintroduction or supplementing of key native bird populations, and establish a programme of planting with native plants.
The Project Janszoon partners believe that with appropriate action on these key issues the ecological fortunes of the Park can be reversed allowing the steady recovery of native flora and fauna by natural processes over the next three decades.
Project Janszoon’s environmental work in the Abel Tasman National Park was recognised at the international Green World Environment Awards in 2015.
