Te Āhua o ngā Kūrei - Estuary Health Monitoring

Project Overview

Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Mutunga will carry out a comprehensive estuarine assessment in the Urenui and Mimitangiatua estuaries.

This study aims to collect a baseline of information about the current health of these estuaries that will include looking at sedimentation, mahinga kai and other Taonga species and the impact of any pest species present.

The project team also want to establish what current and future threats may impact on the health of these important coastal areas.

Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Mutunga are doing this work with support from the Taranaki Regional Council and the Clifton Community Board and will be working with students from Uruti, Mimi and Urenui Schools.
