Education is fundamental to the success of the project and we will continue to develop new resources through time.

We have compiled the following useful resources to help with the education process.

If you have education resources or ideas that you would like us to include please contact us.

The Tōtara’s for Tōtaranui project has four foundations that run throughout all of the work that is done.

Protect, Restore, Enhance and Educate.

We need to protect the Queen Charlotte Sound / Tōtaranui.

We need to restore what has been damaged.

We need to enhance the environment for future generations.

We need educate people about why this is important.
