22 years ago, the Hauraki Gulf became our first marine reserve. This ended up meaning, well nothing. Apart from a few pockets of protection zones, commercial and recreational fishing were allowed to continue

Now in 2022, the Hauraki Gulf is facing a near ecosystem collapse

A State of our Gulf report is produced every three years, and every report has warned that we are basically creating a barren wasteland out of this once rich diverse marine area. Crayfish once one of the most abundant species in the area, now are functional extinct in some areas of the gulf. A recent Niwa scallop survey showed that 93 per cent of the Hauraki Gulf's scallop population has disappeared in the last 10 years. Most species have been fished to low levels (20% or less of previous abundance.)

We have essentially eaten the gulf to death

This is not an anomaly. New Zealand oceans are in dire straits due to overfishing, pollution and climate change

At the moment, only 0.3 percent of our oceans are protected through marine reserves

You can help protect our oceans and push our government to create more marine protected areas (MPAs)

🖋Check out the petition by Our Seas Our Future who are calling for 30% of New Zealand’s oceans as Marine Reserves by 2030

🌿Cut out or reduce fish from your diet or if you are not open to this, stop eating fish that isn’t certified and proven beyond shadow of doubt to be part of a sustainable supply chain

💛Do not vilify people - This is a complex issue - many people rely on fishing for their livelihoods and approximately 3 billion people in the world rely on wild-caught and farmed seafood as a primary source of protein. Vilifying people who are trying to make a living, or feed themselves, - well this is not going to incite postive change nor get oceans protected

Mum said that the early worm eats a bunch of birds…or something - I wasn’t really listening 😁

Yesterday me and mum dropped dad off early for a fishing trip and so we walked along the waterfront here in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland before the sun got too hot and before there were too many people around. Mum isn’t really much of a morning person, but it was really nice!

Are your parents more early birds or night owls? 🐦🦉

One small thing I've grown to love about photography is how it opens you up to notice tiny details every time you find yourself outside. The way the light hits a tree. How mountains glow in the morning. All those little things you can easily miss when your mind is somewhere else. A gratitude for the place your feet have taken you to.
