Penguins at the Port - Community rendezvous
2 December 2019 - On 17 November, Trustees invited the community to join them on a tour of the proposed environmental precinct at Port Tarakohe. People heard about the community science project planned to be undertaken there.
The sun shone for an outing along the western arm of Port Tarakohe. Around thirty people turned out for the tour of the proposed environmental precinct. Participants heard about the work community voluteers had done to establish the existing penguin colony in 2009.
A community-based science project for korora conservation - creating a sand area for shorebirds, introducing an environmental education programme and ensuring a safe place for penguins and shorebirds - were some of the plans shared with the group.
