Protecting Our Environment

Our natural environment provides our physical sustenance as well as being a reminder of tīpuna and the spiritual aspect of our existence. The health of our environment has a direct influence on the health of our people. We are charged to preserve and protect our air, water and lands and the resources within for the benefit and survival of our mokopuna.
