Coromandel MP Scott Simpson is warning against complacency after new surveys of the region show kauri dieback disease has not spread as widely as feared.
Scott Simpson MP says ‘The disease has only been confirmed on two sites on the Coromandel. This is a relief for volunteers who’re working hard to prevent the disease from spreading. However we must remain vigilant so that kauri dieback is contained.’
MP Scott Simpson is welcoming two new grants to help protect Coromandel’s kiwi and Kauri.
Mr Simpson says the kiwi care project Whenuakiwi has been awarded $25,000 for predator control in the eastern Coromandel, and Kauri 2000 Trust has received $57,000 to help prevent the spread of Kauri Dieback disease.
