We’re looking forward to reconnecting with you in person and resume our activities in nature. The safety and well-being of our people, their whānau and the wider community is our top priority. For this reason, we’ve decided to opt in to vaccine certificates. This means that from 2 December at 11:59pm, everyone over the age of 12 coming to our events or face-to-face hui will have to present a valid My Vaccine Pass on arrival. This also applies to all our staff members. We hope this gives you and your loved ones more confidence to engage with our mahi for our oceans this summer.
All events in nature and at our Flagship Education Centre will require a My Vaccine Pass on your phone or printed, to be scanned and verified at the event, for those ages 12 and over, before entry. Participants under 12 years of age will need to be accompanied by a fully vaccinated parent or guardian. All participants will need to bring along face coverings and follow physical distance guidelines where required.
For events organised by community volunteers, it is up to the organisers to decide if they would like to opt-in vaccine certificates, in accordance with the Covid Protection Framework rules.
If you are not vaccinated, there are still lots of ways you can get involved. You can hire a DIY kit with all the gear you need to conduct your own beach clean-up, or start raising some native seedlings at home.
