Eight biodiversity projects in South Canterbury have received a financial boost with the Orari Temuka Opihi Pareora water zone committee allocating $105,000 in funding.

The new round of annual funding has been allocated to projects, including the restoration of coastal wetlands and habitat protection for the long-tailed bat population.

Environment Canterbury (ECan) is partly funding the projects through its immediate steps programme for the 2019-2020 year, which were approved by the committee at a meeting in Timaru on Monday.

Each project will receive between $1800 and $27,800 of funding, with landowners and project partners contributing a further 50 percent of funding – boosting the overall worth of the projects to an estimated $200,000.

Six new and two ongoing projects have received funding. These include North Opuha weed control $7500, Waihi River biodiversity corridor $12,200, Prattley Rd Wetland protection $27,800, Rockburn bat habitat fencing $1800, Black Birch QEII – stage three $21,000, Waihi Peak spanish heath $15,000, Upper Rangitata predator control (fourth year of funding) $13,333, and Ellis Road Wetland (second year of funding) $6000.
