The first of its kind, Project Crim son was launched at Anaura Bay with the planting of 80 Pohutakawa trees and 40 mixed coastal shrubs. A 20 chain, 7 wire fence was erected to protect the trees. This wonderful effort to save the pohutakawa came through the Young Farmers Club who read about the Resource Management Act in the "Young Country" magazine, approached a delighted Department of Conservation who came up with a proposal and Project Crimson was completed in conjunction with Conservation week.
