WORKDAYS workdays 2020: March to November
General volunteer workdays will be held on the 4th Sunday of each second month, running from March 2020 to November 2020.
These workdays are weather dependent, so are subject to change over the course of the year.
A day encompassing a talk on kokako background and the pest control programme, some bait line maintenance, and hopefully calling in kokako will be held for potential sponsors Bay Gold and again for the 'Future Foresters' group. A similar occasion will be held towards the end of the year for staff of Kokako Coffee in Auckland. This company has been a committed sponsor for several years.
A small team of five people have undertaken to do a monthly check of the 63 DOC 200 traps in Otari Block. Three people can comfortably complete the round during a morning. The team members will liaise each month to find a date suitable to those available.
Tsunami Warning (CANCELLED)
Updated on 5 March at 1.17pm
The Tsunami Warning has now been cancelled. Those people who evacuated can return home.
The threat to land and marine areas remains, so we continue to ask people to stay away from beaches and other shore areas – this includes harbours and estuaries until it has been lifted.
Currents may be strong and unpredictable and there is a danger to swimmers, surfers, people fishing, small boats and anyone in or near the water close to shore.
As a reminder people in all New Zealand coastal areas should:
Listen to the radio and/or TV for updates, or check www.civildefence.govt.nz
Listen to local Civil Defence authorities and follow any instructions regarding evacuation of your area
Stay out of the water (sea, rivers and estuaries, this includes boats)
Stay off beaches and shore areas
Do not go sightseeing
Share this information with family, neighbours and friends
Thank you again to everyone who evacuated this morning and for your cooperation in helping keep everyone safe.

Ngāti Mākino Strategic Plan Development Survey
Updated on 26 February 2021 @ 4.21pm
We, Ngāti Mākino Iwi Authority are developing our new strategic plan and would like feedback from our Registered Iwi Members (18 years and older) to help shape and inform the Plan.
Originally the plan was to be completed in 2020 but Covid 19 impacted our ability to engage fully with you.
We have a planned wānanga for the strategic plan on March 6 2021 at Ōtamarākau marae ( 10 - 1pm). This survey is another opportunity for you to engage in this important kaupapa that will help focus our efforts over the next three years.
The feedback from the wānanga and this survey will help us finalise the new strategic plan.
*The survey will be available until 13 March 2021.
*You can only submit one response per person.
