Verse of The Day
“E matau ana hoki tatou na wai tenei kupu, Maku te rapu utu; maku te hoatu utu, e ai ta te Ariki: me tenei ano, E whakawa te Ariki mo tana iwi. He mea mataku te taka ki roto ki nga ringaringa o te Atua ora.” (Hebrews 10:30-31)

"Sea Tow" sand dredge and tug in position for the celebrations

The sandspit is now safely in government hands and has finally come under Schedule 4 protection.

Tim Groser (then Conservation minister, and now Trade minister) foreshadowed this development when he said,

"...if there is an economic benefit, then we should know about it, welcome it, and manage for it, because it strengthens the justification for public and private spending on conservation. It does so by shifting support for conservation from being a social cost to a social investment.
July 2009 address to the Conservation Estate Symposium

The Sandspit will be renamed "Sandmine" in a ceremony on the sand dredge "Sea Tow" in Ngunguru Bay at midday today to acknowledge the strength and lasting value of the new protections.

NSaPS has been assured by sand-mining experts that the sand will be "surgically removed".
