Turning the Tide

Turning the Tide: An Estuaries Toolkit for New Zealand Communities.

"The kit firstly establishes the importance of estuaries as habitats worth caring about and then outlines how a community might be mobilised to establish a monitoring program in their district.  The methods for such a program are then clearly described in workable ways without resort to expensive and complex analysis or testing. The result is an estuary ‘Warrant of Fitness’ check,  with further guidance for groups who want to take their program to the next level.  Finally the kit lists a wide range of educational resources, community case studies species descriptions and references."
