IMG 5429Mountains to Sea Conservation Trust (MTSCT) Trustee and National Coordinator Kim Jones reinvigorated WBC delivery in the Auckland region in 2015. Sophie Tweddle joined the team in 2016 and Sophie Journee joined in 2017.  The current focus in this region is on monitoring and raising awareness of local freshwater issues, supporting local government initiatives and local community groups in North and West Auckland.

Key waterways of current projects include the Mahurangi River (Rodney – Hauraki Gulf), Kaipara – Hoteo River sub-catchment, Henderson Creek, Snells Beach, Long Bay and Kaipatiki Creek .

A list of schools that we have worked with can be found below with links to their findings.

WBC Auckland have been working with Auckland Council and Wai Care to locate and enhance Inanga spawning habitat on the Hoteo River. We have also started collaborating with many other stakeholders in the Mahurangi River catchment including Mahurangi Action Group, New Zealand Premium Whitebait, Wai Care and Ngati Manuhiri on various projects including Native Fish Discovery Nights and regional hui and wananga.
