Our Oceans – Our Future – Conference/Hui
June 5th, 3pm to 5pm, C3 Church
In June, scientists, conservationists, iwi leaders, local officials, recreational and commercial fishers, among others will come together in Whitianga to learn about the state of our coastal marine ecosystems and the need for greater protection going forward.
The event has been inspired by the Ngati Hei rāhui over scallop beds around the iwi’s rohe, seen by organisers as a great example of community-led response to an environmental crisis.
Entry is free, koha is welcome to help cover costs. Read more. . .
