This Curious Minds Public Participatory Platform project compared two restoration sites, one at Nowells Lakes, the other at Rotokare Scenic Reserve.

MAIN Trust partnered with Rotokare Scenic Reserve, Hawera High School, Ngaere School and Rawhitiroa School to assess the restoration work on Taranaki’s riparian margins and in wetland ecosystems.

Students monitored two sites for invertebrates and vegetation and recorded environmental factors with assistance from 'Bright Sparks', the technology training organisation. The project seeks to generate biodiversity records to measure changes over time, an important factor in gauging the success of habitat restoration. Students worked alongside restoration practitioners and learned about the important work that is being done to restore these riparian sites.
