Seaweek

Our fragile, finite taonga - Kia Mataara! Tiakina te au o te moana, he kōpīpī tōna

Our fragile, finite taonga – be alert to the fragility of the marine environment and its treasures. Kia mataara! Tiakina te au o te moana, he kōpīpī tōna"is the theme for NZAEE's Seaweek 2014, highlighting how precious this amazing resource is that we call the sea.

Running from March 1-9, Seaweek 2014 will call on Kiwis from all walks of life to celebrate Tangaroa's realm, tackle issues such as marine pollution and learn about the positive impacts of initiatives such as sustainable fishing and marine reserves to look after our seas for future generations. We all contribute to taking care of our oceans.
