signs at the boat ramp

In January 2016 a large WDC/DOC sign was erected by the Ngunguru estuary boat ramp opposite Kakariki Road. Details on the sign were about native birds and local beach and sandspit reserve rules. One evening in August the sign was discovered under the dinghies as the post had snapped off at the base. It was rescued and handed to WDC for safe keeping but unfortunately WDC has not had time to re-erect the sign.

With the school holidays and warmer weather I would like NSaPS to advertise a timely reminder that at all times, NO dogs are allowed on the sandspit beaches or the Sandspit Reserve as shown by the map on the website’s homepage.

Dogs and paw prints continue to be sighted on the spit and beaches. This makes our shore nesting birds vulnerable to disturbance and possible abandonment of nests. I have asked a few people with dogs on the spit to please observe the several signs and large information boards placed along the estuary and on the spit and the answer invariably is “Oh! but my dog would never harm any birds”!
