Does this link with other conservation work being done in greater Christchurch and the surrounding areas?

Yes. Te Kākahu Kahukura is the centre of a network of conservation sites and projects radiating eastwards out across Banks Peninsula, northwards through metropolitan Christchurch to Tūhaitara Coastal Park, Tiromoana Bush and wider North Canterbury, and westwards through the Te Ara Kākāriki greenway across the plains to the mountains of inland Canterbury. Te Kākahu Kahukura is part of a wider vision to allow birds to fly from Banks Peninsula into the urban part of the city, local townships and more widely across the Plains. It aligns with work being done on erosion control, riparian planting and native vegetation linkages across greater Christchurch.
