Saved the Point!

Houghton Bay & Te Raekaihau Point

Great news today that the Environment Court has declined the building of the Marine Education Centre on Te Raekaihau Point on the South Coast. It is fantastic that the naturalness of our iconic coastline will be protected as reserve as it is designated!

As I said in my submission to the court, Marine Education is not site specific but the naturalness of Te Raekaihau is!

Congratulations must go to Barbara & Nick Dryden and the Save the Point team, along with the GADOT team for sticking at it against formidable odds. This is a victory for commonsense and the community, I hope it now means that marine education and conservation can be nurtured at a more appropriate site.
