Instream workshops

Our vision:

  • To have schools, tangata whenua and community groups actively involved in stream and catchment restoration throughout New Zealand
  • To provide ongoing support for all participating groups and schools incorporating cutting edge, practical environmental education
  • To gain a better understanding of the distribution and the abundance of whitebait and other freshwater fish species as well as pest fish species
  • To share knowledge about the effects of landuse practices on freshwater ecosystems and to strengthen the relationship between government departments, schools, community groups and tangata whenua.

The Drains to Harbour Project

The Drains to Harbour (DTH) project has engaged 80% of Whangarei Schools in stormwater education since 2006, stencilled over 300 stormwater drains and installed over 200 permanent drain plaques which help to remind the community that anything that goes down the drain ends up in our waterways and harbour.

Mangrove Discovery Programme

Experiencing Marine Reserves (EMR) initiated the development of a mangrove study pilot programme in 2006 with the support of The Department of Conservation. The pilot was aimed at developing a resource and experience for students and teachers wishing to utilise the new Whangarei Harbour Marine Reserve site at Waikaraka.
