Porirua Harbour in the Kapi-Mana News

Updated 21 August 2015 11:03am

The Kapi-Mana News has published articles about Porirua Harbour. Porirua Harbour is an important coastal area for native biodiversity in the Wellington region.  It provides valuable nursery habitat for fish and hosts a range of threatened wetland and coastal birds.  Rare seagrass and saltmarsh habitats are found in and around the harbour.  These are increasingly rare ecosystems in the Wellington region.Pauatahanui Saltmarsh

Our communities have expressed a strong desire for the harbour to be better protected and improved. Greater Wellington Regional Council together with Porirua City Council, Wellington City Council, and Ngāti Toa are committed to actively working together with the community to ensure the harbour is looked after.  We all need to play a part to help the harbour be a safe and healthy place for us all to enjoy into the future.

The column in the Kapi-Mana News showcases what is special about the harbour and what we can do to help make it better.  The articles include information about the amazing creatures found in and around the harbour and the wonderful people who are already doing helpful activities to keep the streams and harbour healthy.
