We are so grateful for the support and advice we get from all past and present team members, who have dedicated their time and efforts in creating a healthier harbour. Firstly, a 'Thank you' to anyone that has assisted our harbour, in any shape or form.
Our team involves all of the Whangamata community - schools, businesses, residents, bach owners, holiday makers. Boaties, surfers, kayakers, swimmers, bird watchers, joggers, gardeners, dog walkers, cyclists and playground afficionados. Environmentalists, conservationists, engineers, scientists, lawyers, and real estate agents. Mums and Dads, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, and most important of all, our children. The ones who will be walking in our steps one day.
We only have one harbour. Let's look after it now. For the future.
The committee meets on a monthly basis, to update the group in their respective areas, and to bring up any new issues. There is a lot of behind-the-scenes activity - advocating for the health of the harbour to Councillors, landowners and users, environmental scientists, and so forth, plus reports and monitoring, and co ordinating special projects for members to assist in. These people put in a lot of time and effort - for the reward of a better harbour.
