We live among slumbering giants...

We live among slumbering giants...An old fault between Great Barrier and Little Barrier Island seems to have been awoken. Another magnitude 2.4 earthquake this afternoon at 4:33pm in the same location as the magnitude 2.4 on 18 September. Both quakes were pinpointed by GeoNet at the end of the Cradock channel fault.

Some exciting news from Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei - Whai Māia and Revive Our Gulf 🙌

Some exciting news from Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei - Whai Māia and Revive Our Gulf 🙌Tēnā tātou e te whānau, over the next few days you may see some activity in Ōkahu Bay 🌊

We are proud to announce that Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei and the Revive Our Gulf project are working on a study that looks to build on past efforts to re-seed kūtai / mussel beds in Ōkahu Bay🦪This is just stage one of the works where the project team is working with Ports of Auckland to prepare a section of the bay for mussel beds using “up-cycled” shell hash from maintenance dredging.

A platform measuring 50m x 50m and approximately half a metre deep will be deposited on the inside of the breakwater piles. The shell hash will be extracted from the Rangitoto Channel just out from Ōkahu Bay. Using a shell substrate for the mussels beds is thought to improve survival rate and increase available habitat for juvenile mussels and other organisms to settle on. We plan to deposit the mussels before the end of the year.

Exciting stuff e te whānau, keep a look out for more updates and information coming soon...

It's time to dish the dirt on sediment.

The video from Department of Conservation below outlines the issue, but makes it look far too cute. It's not. Sediment is one of the worst pollutants of our coastal and marine environment. More attention is needed on the activities that are causing this 10 fold increase.
