If you are out in a boat this Summer...

Alison Shrigley Reporter from The Bay Chronicle

Respect the locals.

Domestic tourism is likely to see the Bay of Island’s marine environment busier than ever this year. Whilst we all like to enjoy the sunshine and unique marine environment the Bay has to offer, we all have a responsibility to protect what makes it so special.

Domestic tourism is likely to see the Bay of Island’s marine environment busier than ever this year. Whilst we all like to enjoy the sunshine and unique marine environment the Bay has to offer, we all have a responsibility to protect what makes it so special.

Te Pēwhairangi/Bay of Islands bottlenose dolphins spend 86% of their day with boats. The population has sadly declined by 91% since 1997 to just 26 individuals.

There are marine mammal regulations to reduce the effect boats have on the bottlenose dolphins, and other marine mammals. Following these regulations is crucial to marine mammals continuing their normal behaviours critical to survival – such as feeding, resting and nursing their young.

What do you think of a proposal to move Auckland ports north?

Hi Northland,

Would you be put off by a health warning at your local swimming spot?

Around 100 popular swimming locations across the country have been slapped with health warnings for the summer season this year.

Local councils reported long-term poor water quality due to the presence of algal blooms and high concentrations of sediment in popular swimming spots like Lake Rotorua, Waikanae Beach and Paraparaumu Beach. Some of these sites have had consistently low scoring that local councils have stopped monitoring them and have instead posted long-term warning signs against swimming.

Swimmers that ignore signs risk gastrointestinal illnesses and respiratory diseases from water made hazardous by farm runoff, sewage contamination and high bacteria counts.

Share your thoughts below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comments featured in the conversations section of your local paper.
