Clean-Up the World Weekend 2010 - what does your sailing spot look like?

Fri 17 Sep 2010 - Sun 19 Sep 2010
Your place

In 2010, the Clean Up the World theme is “Communities caring for nature”. Participating groups will undertake activities such as protecting water sources, planting trees, reducing waste, education and awareness raising.

Clean Up the World partners with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to inspire and empower communities to "clean up, fix up and conserve their environment" by carrying out initiatives ranging from waste removal and tree planting to water and energy conservation projects.

Marine farms to grab four times current area under fast tracked rules

Although it is claimed that only 0.02% of the New Zealand coastline is taken for sea farms, as can be seen from the map, this area overlays some of New Zealand's finest cruising grounds and the grab of sea space proposed by the group will be a quadrupling of the size of sea farms in these cruising grounds and sheltered bays.

Permanent warning signs go up on contaminated northern coastal beaches

Four popular swimming spots are not suitable for bathing at any time because of consistently high bacterial levels.

Langs Beach stream (southern end) in Bream Bay, Ocean Beach stream at Whangarei Heads, Otiria stream in Moerewa and Ahipara's Wairoa stream at the southern end of Ninety Mile Beach have all been removed from the Northland Regional Council's annual summer water quality monitoring programme.
