Nursery of the Gulf, Presentation to the Hauraki Gulf Forum

FBMMRG have been invited to make a brief presentation to the Hauraki Gulf Forum meeting on June 10 on our aspirations for an extended marine reserve area.

In our submission recently submitted to the Department of Conservation concerning its draft Auckland CMS 2014-24., we called for the Motu Manawa (Pollen Island) Marine Reserve to be extended so that it included the foreshore and seabed of the eastern coastline of Te Atatu Peninsula, including all of the tidal shoreline of Harbourview Reserve, with a view to protecting the shorebird feeding grounds of the vast tidal flats in the Whau River estuary.

To see the agenda of the meeting including our presentation slides, please see page 11 & page 35-41 here. Minutes of the meeting please see here.
