Fish Fact Sheets Now Bi-lingual

(Published on 26th January 2016)

NZ Landcare Trust's successful 'Hooked on Native Fish' fact sheets are now available as a bi-lingual resource, with all six information sheets available in both Te Reo and English.

Community groups and iwi/hapu are playing an increasingly important role in the restoration of freshwater habitats for native fish. Resources such as the Trust's fish fact sheets provide valuable information that increases understanding of the various issues impacting on our native fish along with providing a range of helpful solutions.

NZ Landcare Trust Communications Manager James Barnett said, "The fact sheets have been written and designed to present key information in an engaging easy to understand manner. The opportunity to translate the whole series into Te Reo is another step towards reaching the widest possible audience and encouraging more people to get involved with restoration work."

The Mā Te Reo fund through the Māori Language Commission provided $10,560 to update the fact sheets, which covered the costs of translation, design and printing. The Te Reo translation was carried out by the highly respected Pānia Papa and her expert team.

Printed examples of the new resource include both Te Reo and English versions of all six fact sheets, contained within a handy folder. Numbers are limited and it is anticipated that demand will be high.

If you would like to secure a printed copy please email and include 'Fish Fact Sheets' in the subject line.
