We have a number of exciting projects on the go, all aimed at helping maintain and improve the quality of our waterways. See below for more information and how you can get involved.
WAI Wānaka is continuing to ensure that the 60 actions identified in the Community Catchment Plan are completed as well as continuing to fundraise for riparian planting with Million Metres.
It’s our action plan for the Upper Clutha’s freshwater – the Community Catchment Plan or CCP for short.

Safeguarding the future of our waterways requires a plan that is supported by research, monitoring and data to make evidence-based decisions.
WAI Wānaka’s science and education devision works with experts to develop the science and research plans that are needed to understand and protect our catchment.
With funding assistance from RMPP Action Network, WAI Wānaka is supporting Upper Clutha landowners and has helped to establish 6 of the 7 catchment groups operating in the Central Lakes District.
WAI stands for Water Action Initiative; we’re a community group set up to safeguard and improve the quality of the water in and around the broader Upper Clutha catchment.
We share knowledge about our precious alpine waterways and the real impacts of human activity on water quality, and work alongside our community to take action to mediate those impacts.
2% is locked in ice caps and glaciers.
That leaves just 1% for human, plant and animal needs!
