Teaching Our Little Ones To Protect & Preserve
At West Coast Treetops Walkway and Zipline, we take conservation seriously. We believe that it’s important to protect the environment for future generations, which is why we’re committed to keeping pests under control. Our humane traps on-site help protect wildlife, agriculture and private property from disease and destruction that predators cause.
But it’s not just about protecting the environment. It’s also about teaching our little ones to connect with nature and understand the importance of conservation efforts. That’s why we partner with Hokitika Scenic Tours to provide our customers with various trees to purchase for $10.
The funds raised from the tree sales are used to purchase humane automated traps placed in the Westland Forests. So bring the family and learn about conservation efforts while enjoying a fun-filled day at our Treetop Walkway and Café.
