The chair of the Hauraki Gulf Forum would like to see more support for participation of iwi, including an eventual move towards co-management.

The forum has just released its fourth three-yearly State of Our Gulf report, which John Tregidga says should be a wake up call for people concerned about the heath of Tikapa Moana.

He says levels of nitrates coming into the Firth of Thames from the region’s 400,000 cows are still too high despite the investment by farmers and pollution levels from Auckland city are also increasing.

Any solution needs to take notice of the Treaty of Waitangi and Maori customary rights, which is why he appreciated the input of tangata whenua.

"They’ve put a huge commitment into the spatial plan Sea Change, many hours of people sitting round the table working on what needs to happen. If there is one group that does get it, it is tangata whenua. And I’m a great advocate and have been for some time and not the most popular on this course but I’m very much in favour of co-management when it comes to our water," Mr Tregidga says.

The Hauraki mayor would like to see larger and in some cases temporary marine reserves to allow fish stocks and the marine environment to recover.

The fundamental problem with Oranga Tamariki's uplift apology
The fundamental problem with Oranga Tamariki's uplift apology is that it's not really an apology at all because they still believe they had every right to take the infant and are apologising for the lack of communication.
National's new draconian Oranga Tamariki welfare reforms are anti-Māori, anti-women and anti-human

Nothing highlights the denial of colonialism quite like the Parihaka apology
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: We must never allow the perfect to defeat the good, but the fact that it's taken 138 years to formally apologise for the tragedy of Parihaka speaks volumes about the cultural denial of the negative effects of colonialism.
