Author(s): Kaikoura Coastal Guardians

The launch of Te Korowai o Te Tai o Marokura draft marine Strategy August 2011 was held on Thursday, 1 September 2011.
Te Korowai now invite you to tell us your views of the proposed Strategy. THIS IS THE SUMMARY VERSION
Please tell us how we can make this strategy better, more effective, long lasting, and capable of your support.

There is a Submission letter available with advice for those who wish to make a submission.

Te Tai o Marokura, the Kaikoura marine environment, is an ecological system where
the whole is far more than the sum of the parts. Similarly the proposed Strategy is an
integrated whole, reflecting the six years of research and discussion by Te Korowai.
Each part of the Strategy is important and no part can be properly understood in
isolation from the rest. We invite you to approach the Strategy in this same spirit and
encourage you to engage with the full Strategy.

Te Korowai have done our very best to work for the greater good of the people of Kaikoura,
the well being of its natural environment, and to secure opportunities for future
generations. We are not perfect and neither is our work. We offer this strategy
humbly, but with a measure of satisfaction that we have put everything we could into
it. We know that there is great wisdom in our community, and amongst people all
over the world who have come to love the Kaikoura environment. Please tell us how
we can make this strategy better, more effective, long lasting, and capable of your
support.
Every submission made to us will be analysed, compared with the ideas of others, and
taken into account to help finalise the Strategy. Te Korowai will report to you with an analysis
of submissions, a clear record of the decisions we make on the submissions, and how
we have dealt with conflicting views. The final Strategy will be much briefer, without
the background material included in this current proposal. It will focus on the actions
that need to be taken.
Special legislation may be required to give effect to this Strategy. This was the case
with the Fiordland Guardians. The same need for various legal requirements to come
into place at the same time is also true in Kaikoura. Any such Bill will be subject to
Select Committee hearings and everyone will then get another say.
We thank you for your patience, encourage your submissions, and look forward to the
dialogue and discussion over the next three months.

YOUR VIEWS

Te Korowai would really value your views on the our proposed Strategy and invite you to send your comments to us by email or post to the addresses given below:

- Please make sure your contact details (surname, initial and email/postal address) are clearly marked on your submission so that we can send you a copy of the submissions summary.

- This document presents an integrated strategy for the management of the Kaikoura Coast. The process involved ‘gifts and gains’ by the various sectors represented around the table and we encourage you to view it as a whole package, providing protection and enhancement of our coastline for future generations. Please make any general comments about the Strategy as a whole, at the beginning of your submission.

- As you record your comments, we ask that you follow the order of the document and refer to the section of the draft you are commenting on, to help us take account of your views.

- Please include reasons for your comments and include reference to any information we may not have been aware of, while we were drafting the Strategy.

- All submissions will be treated as public documents and used to compile a summary report for Te Korowai. The summary report will be made public and may include quotes from submissions to illustrate key points.

We look forward to receiving your views by: 2 December 2011

This file has a .pdf extensionKaikoura Marine Guardians Newsletter 2011
Author(s): Kaikoura Coastal Guardians

The Te Korowai o Te Tai O Marokura - Kaikoura Coastal Marine Guardians have released their latest newsletter and are working on a marine strategy. They are also still keen to hear from people.
http://fishnet.co.nz/teamkorowai/” title=“http://fishnet.co.nz/teamkorowai/”>http://fishnet.co.nz/teamkorowai/

This is an abstract from their newsletter:
We are very close to presenting a variety of protection tools (and measures) via our strategy and will be seeking feedback from all interested parties including the Rūnanga, Kaikoura community and user groups, both local and further afield.
Throughout this process, we must remind ourselves constantly of our purpose and our vision and this was summed up superbly recently, by one of our members (Tony Brett).
“Remember the gifts come before the gains and the gains may not always be immediately apparent!”
This timely reminder puts into perspective what Te Korowai sets out to achieve and that in order to protect our resources for future generations, we must look to what is best for everyone, put aside individual partiality (the gift), so that all will benefit in the future (the gain).

This file has a .pdf extension2010 proceedings for National Marine and Freshwater Wananga
Author(s): Samara Nicholas

The 2010 national wananga was held in October,  hosted by Whakapaumahara Marae, Whananaki.
The theme was collaboration for conservation of our marine and freshwater environments in schools and communities.  Over 50 people attended the wananga from Invercargill to Kaitaia.
The conference is organized by Samara Nicholas and the Trustees of the Mountains to Sea Conservation Trust . 
“The event was an inspirational professional development and networking opportunity for all those involved or interested in freshwater and marine conservation”.  Says organizer Samara Nicholas
The conference provided professional development, a forum to explore means we can collaborate in marine and freshwater conservation and a forum for marine and freshwater educators to network about education for sustainability initiatives & projects (School and/or community based). One of the main presentations was from Hone Taumaunu, Ngati Konohi kaumatua, who talked on the success of their moana suit, which is a marine conservation project that includes a marine reserve (the nursery for kaimoana) alongside a mataitai reserve (managed by locals for local benefit). 
An exciting edition to the programme was the launch of the new film Water Whisperers Tangaroa, a film that celebrates ten communities facing serious water issues, who come up with amazingly simple solutions.
Another purpose of the wananga was to enhance national delivery of the Experiencing Marine Reserves programme (http://www.emr.org.nz) Baxter Mosely of Whananaki Primary School was invited to make a speech.
The wananga was supported by the Department of Conservation and Tindall Foundation and ended with a snorkel trip to the famous Poor Knights Islands with Dive Tutukaka on board Perfect Day.

This file has a .pdf extensionDenials by Bill Ballantine
Author(s): W. J. Ballantine

DENIALS, DISTRACTIONS AND DEADENDS
Many objections to marine reserves have been stated, as well as a large number of other arguments that prevent effective progress. On careful examination,
these are found to be some combination of irrelevant, unnecessary, premature, illogical or simply untrue, but their number and range are intimidating, at least when first encountered. Listing and sorting all the objections and apparent difficulties shows that there are only a few classes (each with a range of variants), each of which effectively denies or ignores some the principles of marine reserves. By restating the
principles and classifying the objections with respect to these helps understand why the various objections arise and shows how they can be answered effectively and fairly.
