About a month ago the team at Ghost Fishing HQ and Healthy Seas HQ let us know that National Geographic were coming to interview and video our team in action here in New Zealand. We were astonished!
We spent a few days filming with the Nat Geo team and recovered a 40-50 metre ghost net in some of the worst conditions Wellington had to offer.
The documentary of the mission and recovery has just gone live on Nat Geo.
We're so proud of the Ghost Fishing team and what we have achieved here in New Zealand out of sheer tenacity, teamwork and community.
Feel free to share and enjoy.
It’s time to vote for the city you love.
Local elections decide who is on your local council, regional council, district health board, and other important organisations in your area. The people who are elected get to make decisions that affect your daily life and the future of your town or city.

Hi neighbours, soft plastic recycling bins are coming back.
The Love NZ Soft Plastic Recycling Scheme, which was suspended in 2018, has returned to Auckland and Hamilton and, as of October, will be back in Wellington too.
It can get confusing trying to keep track of what to recycle, what not to recycle, and what's just rubbish.

Here's what you can and can't put in soft plastic recycling bins.
We have been made aware of a video on social media of Titahi Bay beach with comments of suspected wastewater pollution/sewage.
We can confirm there has been no discharge or overflow event from the Porirua Wastewater Treatment Plant.
The video shows seaweed and sea foam, which is common following heavy winds.
We will be conducting tests in the area for reassurance, and will provide an update when these results have been received.
