Describe the degree of success you have had to date. How do you measure, both quantitatively and qualitatively, the impact on sustainability or enhancement of local culture, environment, heritage, or aesthetics? How has it transformed or contributed to the power of place or demonstrated the sustainability of tourism? How does your approach minimize negative impacts?
Our degree of success is measured by the visitors that visit us. Their emotional and positive reactions keep us going. The forest makes a come back, with flowers and fruits growing where there weren't any before, bird numbers are up but also the insect life is improving. We have regular visits from the Department of Conservation and the Queen Elizabeth Trust members, that mention we make great progress and even have written testimony letters. We are also proud to say that recently we won the Marlborough Environmental Award for Habitat Enhancement and the overall Supreme Award.
