Hauraki Gulf gets help from new government advisory committee

A new committee has been formed to progress the visions and aspirations developed for the Hauraki Gulf. The committee is called Sea Change Tai Timu Tai Pari Ministerial Advisory Committee and was announced by the Ministry of Conservation and Fisheries today.

The environment of the Hauraki Gulf has been in decline for decades and new approaches were needed to address this. Iwi and stakeholders have been successfully brought together to find solutions.

One of the committee members is Raewyn Peart of the Environmental Defence Society, who was the keynote speaker at our Whitianga conference in 2015.
