The Marlborough Express reported this week that the largest remaining wetland in Marlborough Para is returning to its natural, pristine state, after years of ridding the area of willow trees.

The progrèss is thanks to work from Fish and Game, wine makers and volunteers.

According to the article benefits to the eco system have included “increased waterfowl and fish populations, as well as native tree regrowth, and improved water quality.”

The 122 wetland is based between Tuamarina and Koromiko.
