Taputeranga Marine Reserve – Images of the Sea

Our website shows how the Taputeranga Marine Reserve is special and of benefit to the people of Wellington. The Friends were set up to foster understanding and appreciation of the Reserve, assist DOC to monitor and manage, and develop opportunities such as the Island Bay Snorkel Trail.

The Reserve is yours to protect and enjoy.


Comment: The last time carbon dioxide levels were this high, humans did not exist!! Take climate change seriously.

Good wishes to the new Government. especially the Ministers of Conservation and Climate Change. There are big expectations that New Zealand will finally break the hiatus of action in both of these areas and make progress we can all be proud of.
