Whitebait Connection (WBC)
The Whitebait Connection is an action based environmental education programme offering concrete and specific ways in which all New Zealanders can come to understand and become involved in the future health of our local streams and rivers.
This programme aims to inspire and educate schools, community groups and tangata whenua how to restore and take care of the life-sustaining force of their local streams and catchments.
Coordinators work with schools to help plan and integrate the programme into the curriculum. They then take the class on an in-stream workshop. Participating schools also learn about freshwater bugs, freshwater fish and the ocean food chain as a whole.
