This file has a .pdf extensionwhy do we need no take marine reserves
Author(s): Roger Grace

In New Zealand, when we talk of no-take zones in the sea we really mean
marine reserves, set up under the Marine Reserves Act 1971. Although there
are a few other ways of achieving full protection, the Marine Reserves Act is
the specific piece of legislation designed for this purpose. It does have some
short-comings, however, and to correct some of these a new Marine Reserves
Bill has been prepared, but has been languishing in the storage cupboards of
Parliament with no action for more than ten years.

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.

Author(s): Wick Candle

‘Water Whisperers – Tangaroa’ - the inspiring new film from Kathleen Gallagher
Following ‘Earth Whisperers’, arguably the most loved and successful New Zealand environmental film ever made, ‘Water Whisperers – Tangaroa’ is a natural companion to its predecessor.
“This is the film I knew I had to make after ‘Earth Whisperers,’” says award-winning filmmaker Kathleen Gallagher. 
Filmed at stunning locations from north to south, we follow 10 communities engaged with healing precious waterways for future generations. We share the passion of the people behind the recovery and conservation. We travel up the Rakaia with Al and Tia Wilkie and the Ngai Tahu Ngati Mamoe Fisherfolk and the Winnemen Wintu from Northern California.
We visit The Glen marine reserve and go with stunning underwater footage to Goat Island with Bill Ballantine and the Poor Knights with Wade Doak in the far north. We are transported into the world of Golden Bay dairy farmers and shell fishermen. Together they restore the Aorere River in Golden Bay.
Gallagher says: “This film is about the reconnection of ourselves with our lakes, rivers and oceans. We have guides already in our midst - fishermen, conservationists, farmers, scientists, local iwi and divers who are intimate with lakes river and sea life, knowledgeable about sustainable fishing practices and how to restore damaged waters.”
This film is entertaining and beautiful and a living proof of people’s passion to protect and safeguard our rivers, lakes, coastlines and oceans. You will be inspired!
