Seaweek – Kaupapa Moana 2019 runs from Saturday 2 to Sunday 10 March.
Our beautiful moana is truly amazing. From the sea creatures that live below to the beautiful sunset’s that dazzle us from above, the sea and all its beauty is treasured part of our whānau.
Right now our moana needs help to stay healthy. That’s where we come in. This year we have teamed up with Sithmi Sathruwani, one of our Whakatū Wāhine to celebrate Seaweek – Kaupapa Moana 2019. Together we are inviting you to share your worries, find solutions, so that we can care for and celebrate all the wonderful things our sea offers.
Worried about what’s happening in our oceans? Let’s talk about it and come up with solutions together.
