Sinking ships or new opportunities?

As the City of Sails, Auckland has numerous marinas, jetties, pontoons and mooring locations around its coast. But just because it can float at the moment doesn’t mean it always will. This photo taken during the King Tides of February 2014 shows Milford Marina spilling its banks. Seeing the impact of King Tides now will help us ensure that sea level change impacts are planned for and allow Auckland to remain the City of Sails into the future.   Find out how you can help by checking out the participate page - because we all want the future to be plain sailing...

Will our favourite campgrounds stay above water or will we need to consider and start planning options for mitigating the impacts now? Help us by taking photos now so we can understand what we need to do in the future....

Thinking about our habitats and homes

With so many of us living and working near the coast sharing the impacts of King Tides through photos provides valuable information on what we need to consider to ensure any impacts from sea level change are planned for, not reacted too. And it is not just our habitats either, the ability to record how King Tides impact our natural areas, coastal margins and greenfields allows us to understand how the habitat of our flora and fauna may also be affected. To learn more about how you can participate check out our participate page. You can also find out more about the potential impact of sea...
