Escea commitment to Otago Peninsula
Monday 13 June 2011
Escea is always ready to support local initiatives and programmes in Dunedin – the home of Escea.
The company founders and employees highly value local environment and natural beauty of the city and Otago region. The Otago Peninsula is a world renowned scenic and wildlife resource on the city boundary. It is home to the only mainland colony of The Royal Albatross in the world, and is also a main nesting ground of the endangered Yellow Eyed Penguin.
Escea has just supported Save the Otago Peninsula, a prominent conservation organisation started by Lala Frazer, a well-known conservation activist and a founder of Yellow-eyed Penguin Trust.
Escea assisted with a sand dune restoration project which aims to replace marram grass with pikao grass as the main sand binding plant on the beach. This action will make Otago Peninsula beaches more accessible for wildlife, especially the endangered yellow eyed penguin, and also protect the beaches from ocean erosion.
