Matakana School is excited to part of this fantastic initiative, which supports the protection and preservation of our vital marine ecosystems. Living so close to a marine environment, it is important to create and nurture awareness within our upcoming generations. The ability to walk along our local beaches and still see ocean wildlife playing in the sea right in front of us is something very special, and we are lucky enough to still be able to do this. Going out on a boat and experiencing whales and orca in their own world is a privilege that we must protect for years to come. Helping to create awareness through this project is just a small part of what we can all do to protect something so precious.
