Stories and images
“It is great to know that there are lots of people out there teaching us how to care for the colourful sea creatures in the ocean, when I am older I want to be a snorkeler like you, I cannot wait!”
“I love learning about the interconnectedness of it all. The way the water connects the mountains to the sea and the people too.”
"These kids are the future users and guardians of Tangaroa. With awareness of what natural abundance looks like and how far we have come from it, they’re better placed to care for it throughout their lives. We think the conservation education work Mountains to Sea Conservation Trust is doing is invaluable, long may it continue." Dean Wright - Supporter
"The practical science approach that the Whitebait Connection apply to their work is readily understood and appreciated by landowners who are able to see a direct connection between what they do on their land and the effects on inanga (whitebait) and other wildlife.” Kevin Adshead - Supporter
