2015 Green Ribbon Awards

Come and join us to witness the amazing results of co-operative ventures between Project Janszoon, The Abel Tasman Birdsong Trust and Department of Conservation.

As proud supporters of the Abel Tasman Birdsong Trust, we were delighted to see the trust recognised as playing an instrumental part in Project Janszoon winning both the Supreme Award, and Philanthropy and Partnership category at the 2015 Green Ribbon Awards.

At presentation of the Green Ribbon Supreme Award, held at The Beehive in Wellington, 4 June 2015, Project Janszoon Director, Devon McLean, ensured that representatives from the birdsong trust and Department of Conservation accepted the award with him.

Our CEO, Darryl Wilson says, “As one of the founding members of The Abel Tasman Birdsong Trust, we are delighted to contribute to this successful partnership. Project Janszoon’s recognition of the value of its partners, demonstrates how such co-operative ventures can make a significant impact on the health of our environment, now and in the future.”

Project Janszoon is committed to a 30-year plan of environmental improvements in Abel Tasman National Park relying on philanthropic funding used to maximum benefit by involving Department of Conservation, local communities, schools and tourism operators. It is the first restoration project to sign a Tomorrow Accord with the Government. The Accord commits the Government to making sure the Project’s 30-year achievements are maintained into the future.
