Conservation Projects

Cable Bay Kayaks is currently creating a biodiversity corridor on their coastal hill property in North Nelson, it is a project that will span over 4-5 years and the goal is to plant 10,000 natives in that period. The goal is to improve and enhance the ecosystem in this area and link it up with nearby native plantings hence creating a biodiversity corridor. Although this is by no means a huge project in the big scheme of what we need to do to improve our ecosystems, if everyone did a little bit as a collective we can start to make a difference.

In 2020, we planted 2,200 natives and in 2021 we are planting 2,500 natives. The natives we have planted so far are; Koromiko, Karamu, Tarata, Ti Kouka, Kowhai, Griselinia Lucida, Kanuka and Manuka. Cable Bay Kayaks have planted and will be continuing to plant a native tree for each person who goes on tour with us, so we are grateful for your support.

Conservation in Partnership

Our sister business, Abel Tasman Eco Tours fund and support local conservation projects and sustainability. A dollar per person who goes on tour with Abel Tasman Eco Tours goes to each of these three organisations below whom we support. We acknowledge our impact and strive to leave a positive result through our environmental, educational and community work. Cable Bay Kayaks team support these organisations by volunteering their time to assist with events and will continue to support these organisations in partnership with Abel Tasman Eco Tours.
