‘In a restless, intertwining dance across the gravel outwash plains of the Upper Waitaki Basin, braided rivers create channels that are the alluvial shapeshifters of the region . . .  these river systems are all about channels and gravel islands but over time they create other habitats, including backwaters, ponds and wetlands. In response, new specialised forms of life evolve – animal and plant – to fill the new niche in nature. And biodiversity takes on new meaning.’
