ASB MAGAZINE: Quiksilver’s Boardriders Foundation in partnership with Torquay Landcare held their 11th annual “Revegetation Day” last month, focusing on Bowman’s Track (Spring Creek region) for the sixth year running. With this mission in mind, the decision to work on Bowman’s track has been inspired by the rapid growth of urban development in the area and the recreational activities it has invited as a result. Concerned for the health of the creek, the Boardriders Foundation’s collaboration with Torquay Landcare has been designed to continue carrying out planting and weed control.
Talking to local media, Torquay Landcare Group president Margot Galletly said Boardriders had a vested interest in protecting the environment and its natural inhabitants.
“Boardriders (Quiksilver) is a local corporation that has a strong interest in conserving the environment; and this will be the 11th year that the Boardriders Foundation has sponsored Torquay Landcare Group’s (TLG) regeneration work,” she said.
“The people from Boardriders have been wonderful, bringing all their energy and good cheer to the job.”
Quiksilver’s Eve Hollenkamp said the organisation has been involved with the local community for years on various projects.
“Our staff love being involved in the annual revegetation day as it’s a great opportunity to environmentally improve the area so it is preserved and enjoyed by all for many years to come,” she said.
“This year staff brought along their children, which was fabulous to share this opportunity with our future coastal guardians.”
Nice one Quiksilver….
