This evening my partner was swimming in the river near our house. Some teenage boys came along, hunting eels. She spoke with them and said she liked having the eel(s) there. They said "the river is public" and proceeded to kill the eel in front of her. I am out of the area at the moment. I would like to find out who these boys are and speak to them about this incident, including my partner's feelings, and respect and consideration for others. Also, I don't know if these are long or short finned eels. Long finned eels are threatened, short are not. But mainly I am concerned about their disregard for my partner. They could easily have gone elsewhere at least. I am not out to "get" these kids, just confront them with their inconsideration and look at what could be done better. Do you know who these kids are? Want to talk? I don't really want a long comment thread and I probably won't reply to them. I just want to talk to the people involved.

Kia ora koutou, I’m Louise from Makara Beach, and a co-chair of the Whaitua Te Whanganui-a-Tara Committee tasked with making recommendations to Greater Wellington Regional Council on the future of our coastal and freshwater quality, and how our water is used. Our waterways and all the fish and species that live in them are precious taonga, so we have set out to understand how they are valued and what should be done to provide the future we want for our water.
Some of our waterways have high levels of E-coli and other illness causing bacteria for anyone who ingests them. We need your help in protecting the health and mauri of our waterways, which are under pressure due to increasing population and land development. We need solutions to be able to enjoy our beautiful waterways and this will require change. This needs to reflect our communities’ views informed by good evidence and information.
Connect with us to talk about what we can do together. You can reach us at email@example.com. To see what we have been doing visit our Facebook page (www.facebook.com...), and to share what you value about our water and your solutions have your say (www.haveyoursay.gw.gov.nz...)
