Catch up on Tauranga Harbour health

Thursday, 28 May 2015 10:00 a.m.

Bay of Plenty Regional Council is hosting a morning of presentations and discussion on Wednesday 10 June for anyone that’s interested in catching up on the latest information about the health of the Tauranga Harbour.

Tauranga Harbour Programme Manager Laverne Mortlock said the event is open to everyone who registers by Friday 5 June. It will be held at the Tauranga Yacht Club, Sulphur Point Marina.

“It’s a chance for people to network and share information about work they’re doing to care for land, water, wildlife, cultural values and recreation in and around Te Awanui (Tauranga Harbour).”

The event programme includes presentations about current environmental monitoring and pollution prevention work being led by the local councils and research organisations. Speakers include Regional Council staff and University of Waikato Chair of Coastal Science Chris Battershill.

“We’re also hoping to highlight some examples of action on the ground by iwi and community groups and look at how we can work together better to fill any gaps in knowledge and support,” said Ms Mortlock.
