Conservation in the Abel Tasman
Like many parts of the world, the Abel Tasman has its fair share of environmental challenges, but thanks to the work of local community groups and philanthropists, an incredible conservation story is emerging. Groups such as Project Janszoon, the Abel Tasman Birdsong Trust and the Department of Conservation are working hard to restore the Park back to its original biodiversity and the progress so far is very promising.
