Overlooking Lyttelton

The area around Rāpaki Marae, nestled in the beautiful Whakaraupō/Lyttelton Harbour, was once known for its great abundance of kaimoana. Climate change, pollution and deforestation have put that at risk, but a massive amount of community mahi is helping to turn the tide.

Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke share their story of how climate change has impacted mahinga kai around Rāpaki, and how the community is working together to restore their local environment.
