This week, Wholesale Landscapes gifted Natureland $2,000 to help towards their day to day running of the Wildlife Trust.
While we were, the scope of social responsibility of Natureland was instantly recognised when Director Meg Rutledge mentioned “Our Kea enclosure is temporarily closed due to recently saving two Kea from a Manawatu Park that was no longer able to house the birds. The new kea are being introduced in a safe, neutral space to our own resident birds ”
It’s on this level that Natureland operates and provides a nurturing or ‘second chance’ service. Natureland has passed an external animal welfare accreditation, of which only 21 of the country’s zoos have been able to gain. It not only provides solutions to situations where animals may need long-term human care, but also an educational tool for the next generation to learn from.
Natureland goes beyond providing Nelson with a Zoo, they also spend a significant amount of unrecognised effort collaborating with DoC, and other conservation organisations to ensure endangered species remain sustained in New Zealand.
Wholesale Landscapes has a culture of CARE, and the belief in being resourceful in making the most of what we’ve been given. Because of the alignment of Natureland’s activities for the community good, we’ve donated $2,000 and additional support in landscaping supplies for Natureland.
This will assist and support Natureland in what they do for not only the Nelson region, but also further afield.
