About the group
It is well recognised that shorelines of New Zealand Aotearoa, including Snells Beach, are under threat and at high risk of irreversible damage. Climate change, urbanisation, pollution and the destruction of local ecosystems and its surrounding ecology impact on the quality of our shoreline and our unique flora and fauna.
Tackling such problems requires international and national action. It is also well recognised that local people can make a positive contribution in helping to protect and improve their local shorelines for future generations.
This belief underpins the aims and purpose of the Snells Shoreline Conservation Community. As a group, it wants to operate as a force of change that helps and enables the local community to protect and improve the shoreline of Snells Beach.
