Mahia Peninsula is an Isthmus island on the East Coast of the North Island between Gisborne and Napier.
In July 2010 the local community of Whangawehi raised the issue of the potential effects of the Mahia Beach Community Waste Water System and other land uses on the water quality of the Whangawehi stream, the estuary and the mahinga kai beds outside the river mouth.
The mission of the James River Association is to be a guardian of the James River. We provide a voice for the river and take action to promote conservation and responsible stewardship of its natural resources. RA monitors the river, responds to problems, seeks policy changes, and implements on-the-ground projects to restore the river’s health. We protect through our Watershed Restoration, James Riverkeeper, and River Advocacy programs.
Since 1979, Friends has been working to improve the health of the Chicago River for the benefit of people, plants and animals; and by doing so, has laid the foundation for the river to be a beautiful, continuous, and easily accessible corridor of open space in the Chicago region.
Friends’ work spans the entire 156-mile Chicago River system and its surrounding watershed.
