Share vision with DOC It could be a day trip to 600-year-old Rangitoto Island or exploring the 125-year-old military defences on North Head. The Department of Conservation is asking Aucklanders about their favourite conservation spots in the region. We want to know what you like doing at these places, your vision for the place in 10 years' time and what you would do to make this vision happen,'' spokesman Jonathan Miles says. The survey is part of a strategy review for areas such as Rangitoto Island and the North Head His- toric Reserve near Devonport. It's DOC's handshake with the community on conservation and rec- reation priorities and identifies the work the department will focus on over the next decade. This feedback is important because it enables DOC to incorpor- ate the public's views into the Conservation Management Strategy,'' Mr Miles says. We want people to visit and enjoy the places we manage and taking part in this survey will help us achieve that.'' Visit www.doc.govt.nz/ aucklandcms to complete the survey or call 445-9142. Surveys must be submitted by July 17. 11 EASTERN COURIER, JULY 15, 2011 NEWS Kiwi ingenuity: Matty Moynagh scoops rubbish out of the harbour with a pool scoop. Photo: JASON OXENHAM Voluntary harbour pollution fighters are jet powered By HANNAH SPYKSMA The tide ebbs and flows at the downtown water- front where city and ocean collide and rubbish meets sea. A torrent of litter and pollution enters the har- bour through storm- water pipes tucked un- der the quay walkway at the ferry terminal. It is also where Auck- land Adventure Jet staff spend a lot of time scooping it up. It's mainly after rain that the rubbish is at its worst, it comes out of the drain pipes. We get nasty things from con- doms and sanitary items to parking tickets,'' jetboat skipper Dean Kennedy says. The thrill-seeking business is new on the Auckland tourism scene and has been making a conscious effort to clean up its patch. It is based on a pon- toon between the Hilton Hotel and ferry terminal and sees just how much pollution enters the Wai- temata Harbour. Trip co-ordinator Matty Moynagh is stationed at the recep- tion desk where patrons also get a clear view of the underbelly of the wharf where most of the litter accumulates. Mr Moynagh says the blue water is speckled a dirty brown colour by hundreds of cigarette butts which float under the pylons and around the popular Viaduct har- bour, especially on calm weekend mornings. With a little bit of Kiwi ingenuity, the company has invested in a pool scoop, which they use to fish rubbish out of the sea around their site. They have recycling bins and audit their rub- bish collection each day. Mr Kennedy says about 80 percent of litter they drag out of the water is plastic. Their clean-up oper- ation out on the harbour gets a little more advanced. Its jetboat can reach remote and shallow corners of the Waite- mata. Crew have been known to comb these areas in their downtime, picking up trash and bringing it back on the boat. The central city busi- ness also lent its services to the coastal clean up of North Shore beaches, run in collaboration with Sustainable Coastlines. The mid-April clean- up collected 16,081 litres of rubbish from beaches that surround the har- bour. That is equivalent to 67 large kerbside wheelie bins. Event organiser Sam Judd says it was a great help having the jetboat, which ferried passengers to Shoal Bay. They approached us which is always nice, saying they really wanted to help -- the jetboat team were abso- lutely wonderful to work with.'' Sustainable Coastlines donated the company several reuseable, wash- able rubbish sacks to help clean-up efforts.
