Verse of The Day
“Kia mahara ehara nga mea pirau, te hiriwa, te koura, i te utu mo koutou, i puta mai ai i a koutou ritenga tekateka i whakarerea mai e o koutou matua; Engari he toto utu nui me te mea no te reme kohakore, pokekore, ara no te Karaiti.” (1 Peter 1:18-19)

What's happening to the New Zealand coast?

Castles in the Sand tells the story of the New Zealand coast ─ what it means to New Zealanders and what we need to do to care for it for future generations. It describes the natural history of the coast, the ways it was utilised by Maori and European settlers, and the extraordinary post-war era of bach-building.

Author Raewyn Peart sets out the social, political and economic factors that have fuelled the more recent development of the coastline, and she looks at the tension between private and public interests, Maori and Pakeha, environmental preservation and development, and the responsibilities of central and local government.

A timely evaluation and call to action, Castles in the Sand concludes that it is not too late to change our management of the coast to ensure continued access for all New Zealanders, protection of our natural heritage, and responsible, sustainable development.
