Now we are looking for people to help us spread our educational messages far and wide.

As part of our Love Your Water Tree Planting and Training campaign, we would you to join us for our Presentation Delivery Workshops in Wellington. The workshop will be held on Wednesday 17 June, 6.30pm to 8.30pm at the Wellington City Library, 65 Victoria St, Wellington.

For our Love your Coast 2015 finale, come and join us on Sunday 13 December from 7.00pm at the Lighthouse Cinema, Cuba for an exclusive screening of ‘In the Heart of the Sea’.

We invite you, your family and friends to come and celebrate the end of the Love Your Coast Wellington for 2015. The efforts of Wellingtonians during the last few months have been epic, with thousands of school children, teachers, divers, kayakers, four-wheel drivers, and you — the public — involved.

We will be screening the recently released film ‘In the Heart of the Sea’. “In 1820, crewmen aboard the New England vessel Essex face a harrowing battle for survival when a whale of mammoth size and strength attacks with force, crippling their ship and leaving them adrift in the ocean. Pushed to their limits and facing storms, starvation, panic and despair, the survivors must resort to the unthinkable to stay alive. Their incredible tale ultimately inspires author Herman Melville to write ‘Moby-Dick.’”

GET YOUR TICKETS HERE

The movie is PG13 and tickets are $20, and include delicious drinks courtesy of Phoenix Organics. There will also be alcoholic beverages, as well as other food and soft drinks available for purchase at the cinema bar.

From 7.00pm we’ll have pictures taken from during the last term’s clean-up events on show, as well as the announcement of our ‘Weirdest Beach Treasure’ competition. Get your tickets through the link above or by clicking here.

Come and join our Sustainable Coastlines crew as we team up with the Auckland Zoo and Phoenix Organics in honor of nationwide Conservation Week. From Friday 30 October to Sunday 8 November our popular ‘Education Station’ shipping container classroom will be stationed at the entrance to Auckland Zoo, and we’d love to see you there.

Thanks to our friends at Phoenix Organics we will be running free educational workshops to teach you how to give your plastic bottle a new life, showing you how to build your own upcycled herb planter! Workshops will run continuously between 9am-12pm and again from 1pm-4pm on Friday 30, Saturday 31 October and Sunday 1 November, and again on Friday 6, Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 November.

Most of what we pick up from beaches is made of plastic and has only been used once, like food wrappers, plastic bags and drink bottles. Unlike natural, organic things, plastic never goes away. Once in our oceans, rubbish can harm and kill sea creatures. Each year 100,000 marine mammals and 1 million seabirds are killed by rubbish at sea.

This is a family friendly workshop with all materials provided. Just turn up and learn more about looking after the coastlines we all love, but transforming your plastic bottle into the beginning of your own herb garden.

See you there!

Our clean-up with the team from RSM Prince began with sunny skies in the midst of otherwise unsettled weather, a positive sign for the successful clean-up that was to come. After Sustainable Coastlines Trustee Blake Richardson delivered our proven Love Your Coast presentation, the volunteers were ready to get stuck in and clean up the coast.

While we knew we were unlikely to find large quantities of large rubbish — given the active residents groups in the area and the offshore prevailing winds which blow most of the rubbish towards Rangitoto — we were surprised at the final rubbish count at 250 litres of mostly microplastics, pretty shocking! The event was yet another example of the need to take better care of the places we love and spread the word about the horrendous environmental effects of single-use plastics, a message that the RSM volunteer team said was a major take away from the overall clean-up experience. The atmosphere throughout the entire event was awesome and our team had a great time.

We would like to thank the incredible team of RSM Prince volunteers for their commitment and the great job they did to improve the health of our beaches. We hope to see you at one of our beach clean-ups soon.

Saturday 19 September was International Coastal Clean-up Day — presenting the perfect excuse to get outdoors and give back to the places we love. To celebrate we headed out to Auckland’s beautiful Rangitoto Island with 59 keen crew from Air New Zealand.

After boarding our ferry downtown we headed to the island and — after a quick safety briefing — split into two groups to hit the coastlines. The morning clean-up produced an impressive haul of rubbish, and around midday the volunteers headed back to the shelter for a well-deserved BBQ lunch, along with Phoenix Organics drinks, tea and Eighthirty coffee. A treasure hunt contest provided the beachcombers with prizes for the most intriguing finds, including a GPS device, a message in a bottle, a fake breast, a berley feeder in good condition, and a beautiful kauri and paua ornament.

Early showers passed and the spring weather turned it on for a fine and beautiful day. The afternoon saw the team head out for another clean-up effort, and in all the hard working crew managed to remove an impressive 3,500 litres of rubbish from four locations around the island, equivalent to 70 full rubbish sacks’ worth. A mighty fine effort from all!

As usual, the majority of the rubbish found quite clearly had come from Auckland City, floating across the harbour and washing up on the rocky shores of Rangitoto. This type of hands-on action proves to be an excellent, practical and fun way for anyone to learn about how the constant stream of litter from Auckland’s streets flows out through storm drains and affects the islands of the Hauraki Gulf. A huge thank you to all of the staff at Air New Zealand for your efforts, to the Watercare Harbour Clean-up Trust for the use of their trusty vessel, the Phil Warren II, and to Monster Valley for the epic photos.

Participants need to bring:

  • Sturdy shoes – this area has some challenging coastal terrain with rocks that can be sharp, loose and slippery. You’ll need closed-toe, sturdy shoes (such as sneakers, sports shoes or tramping boots).
  • Warm and waterproof clothes – New Zealand weather is unpredictable, especially out here. Bring at least one warm top (ideally woollen) and a rain jacket.
  • Sun hat and sun cream.
  • Reusable water bottle (filled-up and ready to go).
  • Camera (optional) – this is a unique and beautiful location and we would love to see your photos after the event.
  • Your own 4WD (optional) – this is a rare opportunity to explore an amazing area that is usually closed to public access.

Please join us from 9.30am to 3.00pm on Saturday 5 December for a fantastic day of adventure and exploration, all the while cleaning up the beautiful Makara Beach and the coastline surrounding Meridian Energy’s West Wind farm. This wild piece of spectacular coastline, although well looked after by the locals, is affected by a regular flow of waste, so we are going to give it a good pre-summer clean-up. Meridian has been working with Sustainable Coastlines to raise awareness and support coastal clean-ups around Wellington since 2012.

Meet at the Sustainable Coastlines ‘Education Station’ container on Makara Beach at 9.30am, Saturday 5 December to sign-in and collect equipment, for a 10.00am start. From there we will split into teams and head out along the coastline on foot and by 4WD vehicle to clean-up the area from Makara Beach around to Ohau and Opau Bays.

Bring your own 4WD or jump in one that is provided to join the convoy. This will be a unique opportunity to explore the incredibly beautiful bays that are usually closed to the public where unfortunately, tonnes of plastic rubbish washes up.

Bring your own lunch or join us for a free sausage sizzle from 12.30pm at Makara Beach.
