Purpose of group:
A. To protect and enhance the coastal environment and biodiversity of the East Coast of Marlborough.
(i) The area to which the Society refers to is the coastline from Marfell’s Beach to the Waima River (the Area);
(ii) The Society is not restricted to the Area and may extend its focus to any other coastal area that it thinks fit.
B. To inform and educate visitors and the community of the special nature of this coastal environment.
C. To recognise the special geological effects from the Kaikoura Earthquake on the flora and fauna and the marine environment.
About the group: Working with DOC, local council, Iwi, fishermen, 4WD vehicle owners and other beach users is a cumbersome process and it takes years to get anywhere as it is all voluntary work and the key drivers are often busy people with day jobs.
