TĪNUI: Te Kaunihera Kaumātua o Ngāti Koata supports our iwi undertaking a biodiversity survey on Tīnui. As a first step, the Kaunihera supports Pene Gieger taking a group of students from the Project Moturoa course onto Tīnui to look for the presence of pests.

The survey will be for the benefit of all owners of Tīnui.

For further information please contact Pene on pgieger@doc.govt.nz.

KURUPONGI: The Kaunihera Kaumātua has also endorsed a proposal from DOC’s King Shag Working Group to place two activity-cameras on Kurupongi to record the activity of the birds and to ascertain whether they are breeding on the island or not.

A Ngāti Koata representative will join the team going onto the island.

Jarom Hippolite, who has represented Ngāti Koata on the King Shag Working Group, will also be replaced to ensure a close relationship of the iwi with King Shag conservation.

Uncle Lindsay Elkington has acquired a new boat named Te Aurere. We have some photos of him arriving at French Pass on his first trip home to Rangitoto.

A welcoming party was there to pōwhiri Te Aurere, and were treated to some 'wheelies', or 'donuts'.

Te Aurere means 'swift current' or 'swift wake', and we sure do hope she does you well uncle Lindsay. Nau mai Te Aurere!

TIAKI TAIAO: Hūnuku Mokomoko

Kotahi rau ngā mokomoko i hūnuku kāinga mai i te Pākeka ki Pūangiangi i tērā wiki. Nā Te Papa Atawhai i hopu, i mau mai hoki; nā Ngāti Koata i whakatau mai ki runga o Pūangiangi.

He rangi paki, he mahi ngata noa.

Ngāti Koata welcomed 100 Striped Gecko onto Pūangiangi recently in an effort to help conserve the rare species. It was a fabulous day with help from DOC, local community members, and the owners of the island.

The Striped Gecko come from Te Pākeka (Maud Island) and it is hoped this will further increase their chance of survival.

Ngā mihi ki ngā ringa raupā i tae atu ki te hāpai tēnei kaupapa.

Photo credits to Lyn Boulton, thank you very much 🙂

Kua whakatau e Ngāti Koata te mauri mo te pāpuni hou ka tū ki te awa Lee i te ata nei. I reira te tira i te atapō, haere whikoi ana i te whēuriuri, erangi he atapō paki.

Ruarua noa iho te tira nā te tere whakarite. Nā te ua i mākū te whenua i taea ai te tira te uru atu ki rō ngahere.

Ngāti Koata, Barney Thomas, Tasman District Council Mayor Richard Kempthorne, Tasman Water Ltd Board Members and Contractors were present at the laying of the mauri stone for the Lee Dam project.

The much needed rain over the past days allowed the group to enter the forestry area and perform our tikanga at the site.

Ngā mihi ki a koutou katoa
