Taking Flight

He Kōrero mō ngā manu o te Moana
Inspiring stories from the world of seabirds

This year’s popular Hauraki Gulf Marine Park Seminar takes its inspiration from seabirds ngā manu o te Moana.

Twenty seven seabirds find their home in the Hauraki Gulf Tīkapa Moana. Some breed nowhere else. Many roam the oceans between visits. These patterns help us to understand the workings and health of our marine environment.

Join scientists and kaitiaki (guardians) as they reveal the rich and complex lives of seabirds. Learn about research that is helping us to understand behaviour, foraging, distribution, and the risks from fishing and predators. Hear stories of determined restoration effort and responsibility.

What insights can seabirds provide about the ways we could and should manage and utilise the Gulf into the future?

Join the Hauraki Gulf Forum and the Northern NZ Seabird Trust for a day of immersion in the fascinating world of seabirds.
