Mangere Bridge School
Mangere Bridge School sits close to the coast of the Manukau harbour and our tamariki are passionate about the sea! In 2021 students dedicated themselves to studying more about our local harbour, investigating its history and ecology, along with generating ideas of how we could protect and restore it. This led us to widen our gaze to the waters on the other side of the Tāmaki Makaurau isthmus, the Waitematā, where we learnt about the animals, food chains and the importance of marine reserves. Mangere Bridge School are thrilled to be involved in the Whale Tales project, as it another link to promote ocean conservation and highlight the wonderful Bryde’s Whale, an important species needing increased protection.
