We have successfully secured funding for an exciting project for 2022 – 2023: He Kāinga Taurikura ō Tangitū: Treasured Coastal Environment.

This 14-month project is focussed on our kuku reef at Tangoio, a taonga that is under threat largely due to human activities. This project has four phases, click here for more info.

This project will support our tangata kaitiaki who manage customary permits in our takiwā.

This is a collaborative project with NIWA and is funded by the Sustainable Seas National Science Challenge. Sustainable Seas includes Mātauranga Māori informing and underpinning Ecosystem Based Management for Aotearoa. Many other coastal hapū and iwi are keen to learn about our project so join us and together we will make it a success!

Tihei Tangitū!
