Slowing the spread of Didymo


The NZRCA is aware that very few North Island kayakers are following the “check, clean, dry” procedure between catchments.

Genesis Energy and the NZRCA have teamed up to make a concerted effort to protect our rivers from Didymo, in particular the Tongariro River, by using this release weekend to spread the “check, clean, dry” message and to provide some temporary cleaning facilities at the Tongariro River.

Volunteers are needed. Perhaps you know of a non-paddling shuttle driver who could assist. Please contact: Mike Birch [email protected] 027 492 8366 or Alan Bell [email protected] 027 444 7779.
