The park will need tertiary students for specific projects to assist in the short term and long term plans to protect, enhance and restore the biodiversity. Examples include:
(1) identifying which indigenous species of plants and trees will best survive climate change.
(2) identifying which butterflies, beetles, birds, invertebrates and bio-organisms are missing.
(3) identifying where natural flight paths need more planting.
(4) identifying plants and trees suitable for forests and for gardens.
Culture and History
The area is rich in both culture and history:
(1) Mana Whenua have a long history of occupation and stories to tell. What, how and where they do this is something we look forward to. However, it is the richness of this that will contribute to the legacy for future generations.
(2) There are still families of original settlers with stories to tell.
(3) The True Tales of Whangarei Heads compiled by Jan Boyes is a ready source.
(4) The Easter Arts Trail illustrates just what a richness of art and culture is produced by residents on this peninsula.
