Webinar: Empowering kaitiaki

Marine ecology, spatial planning, real-time monitoring, and aquaculture all produce data that can support kaitiaki in their work. However, finding out about and accessing these troves of science information is not always straightforward – and the format is not always readily understandable or useable.

Caine Taiapa and Regan Fairlie from the Tāhuhu Matatau Te Ao Tangaroa project, together with Reon Tuanau, a kaitiaki for Ngāi Te Rangi, will discuss an online pātaka mātauranga (digital resource), co-developed with hapū and kaitiaki of the Tauranga Moana. This tailors and develops information into forms that best suit frontline kaitiaki.

The online tool is being used by kaitiaki and Māori communities to support their educational, research, future co-management/co-governance, and planning activities in the domain of Tangaroa.

This free webinar is open to everyone but will be of particular interest to hapū and whānau, and people working in marine management and policy.
