Over the last 20 years Don Paterson, the founder of the wetlandsnz.com Kaituna River Catchment Wetlands Reestablishment Trust, and the owner of Natural Therapies Limited, has been working towards the reestablishment of wetlands in the Kaituna River catchment in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand.
The objective of the wetlandsnz.com Kaituna River Catchment Wetlands Reestablishment Trust is to purchase parts of 6,000 hectares as they become available and as funding is raised for conversion into productive wetland.
The documents on the right of this page demonstrate our commitment and progress towards this goal.
Please read these background letters showing 20 years of letter writing demonstrating our commitment and the potential commercial advantages of this wetland restoration.
