CORE Education · Hokonui restoration podcast 1 of 2

Riki, Ravi and Molly answered the following questions from students:

  • In terms of the Hokonui seeds, what happens to the seeds after they are harvested and what plant seeds have you collected?
  • What is the role of the Hokonui Rūnanga?
  • Once the trees are planted how long does it take until they are fully grown and how often do you plant new trees?
  • Do you know how much the population of the birds has grown since the restoration work started and if any species have been returned?
  • What impact has being involved in this restoration project had on you and how did you connect or re-connect with your heritage?
  • In Hokonui, after you have cleared pest plants and done restoration planting, how many years before that area looks after itself (e.g. birds spreading seeds). Will you always have to do pest plant and animal control?
  • Ravi, when you are developing apps such as those for Hokonui, do you start from scratch or you adapt from apps you have already made?
