Kathleen Mato and Rae Te Nahu had the privilege yesterday to receive and invitation from Doug Jones (representing Te Wai Maori Trust) to the Maori Fishing Conference in Auckland on the 24th of March. Kathleen and Rae will share the story of the Whangawehi Catchment Management Group and illustrate how working under a collaborative approach can be extremely rewarding.
Te Wai Maori Trust is a long term supporter of the restoration programme undertaken in Whangawehi and we feel privilege to be able to share our story to a wider audience. Tena koe Doug.
Conference summary :
This year’s Māori Fisheries Conference 2015 is about recognising what it takes to be ‘IN FOR THE LONG HAUL’. If iwi want to keep hauling in the net – TŌTOIA TONUTIA TE KUPENGA – we must act fully as kaitiaki, achieve environmental, social and cultural sustainability and ensure the continued abundance of our ocean resources – TE TINI A TANGAROA.
