The King Tides Auckland initiative is a collaborative endeavour between local and national organisations and the Auckland community that aims to promote awareness of sea level rise and help us plan for protecting our coastal areas in the future.
We are part of the wider global Witness King Tides initiatives movement to help build a collective resource to help plan for the impacts of sea level change on our homes, habitats, infrastructure and recreation areas.
Our mission is to add to this global collective while raising local awareness of sea level rise and how it could impact our coastal areas.
We encourage members of the Auckland community to photograph King Tide events and contribute to creating a living record of Auckland’s changing shorelines – captured through citizen imagery.
The initiative has been developed to allow resource sharing including website, hosting and coordination support for other regions within New Zealand. For more information in catching the King Tide movement or supporting it check out information on our Become a partner page.
