Welcome to “Community & Connection” – our monthly video series throughout 2022.
In this series, we continue to explore the connections that we share with each other and with the natural world.
Our planet is experiencing catastrophic environmental harm and it requires us to Think-Long-Term, beyond our lifetimes, to evaluate our choices and to take actions to ensure a sustainable and healthy future for all.
The stories of those leading the change - those thinking and acting with long-term vision, are inspirational.
Inspired, we can ask ourselves, “what can we do to be Better Ancestors?”
“Our environment is us.” Philippa Fairclough
The Ngā Motu Marine Reserve Society founders and volunteers share their story of coming together to learn about the secret lives of kororā (little blue penguin) and how this helps us understand the bigger picture of biodiversity - what we can do to protect taonga species in Aotearoa NZ.
Located in New Plymouth, Taranaki, Aotearoa NZ, the Ngā Motu Marine Reserve Society was set up in 1997 to support a network of small marine reserves on the Taranaki coast. Taranaki has two ‘no-take’ marine reserves, Parininihi in the north, and Tapuae near New Plymouth. The society is made up of people inspired to learn about and protect coastal and marine biodiversity.
