The project was developed in partnership with Te Rūnanga o Ōraka Aparima and proudly supported by the New Zealand National Parks and Conservation Foundation
DOC and key partners are launching an art exhibition to raise awareness of the Tamatea/Dusky Sound restoration programme in Fiordland.
Located on the wild and remote Fiordland coast, Dusky Sound is the focus of a cutting edge project to see it restored to one of the most intact ecosystems on Earth.
The Foundation is a conservation philanthropy organisation, working with the private sector and individuals who are looking to invest money in New Zealand’s natural heritage.
