Weed, poison or native taonga - the great karaka debate

Earlier this month, experts from Aotearoa and Rēkohu/Chatham Islands came together at Zealandia Te Māra a Tāne and Ōtari-Wilton’s Bush to discuss the management around karaka.  

The wānanga aimed to faciliate discussion around the value of this plant and whether it should be classified as a weed, how much of a risk to dogs it presents or if it is a species that needs protection. The Live Illustrators created the beautiful illustrations below to share the key points from each speaker.
