Front line staff member Talei Samuels from Muri Beachcomber has been our top Mana Tiaki donation collector for the past three month. For Talei’s awesome efforts she received an Aitutaki day tour trip for two thanks to one of our awesome Mana Tiaki sponsors Air Rarotonga!
December is when our next top donation collector will be named and will be awarded with a pass for two to splash out with the team from Koka Lagoon Cruises, discover our marine life with Raro Reef Sub, enjoy the island with the crew from Storytellers Eco Cycle Tours and of course some scuba fun with the Big Fish dive centre.
Meitaki Maata to all our participating Mana Tiaki accommodations who have signed up with the programme along with our new accommodations who have also jumped on board to be a Mana Tiaki Guardian and of course leading the way in ‘Protecting a little paradise’.
Check out our newly completed conservation documentary/ Management Plan for the Tanga’eo (Mangaian Kingfisher), created for the community of Mangaia.
We thank Mangaia School, Jason Tuara, Allan Tuara, Taoi Nooroa, Anthony Whyte, and the many members of the Mangaia Community who have supported the Tanga’eo Project, as well as Carinna Langsford, Teresa Arneric and Ian Karika from Te Ipukarea Society who were involved in the earlier stages of the project.
And of course the Aage V. Jensen Foundation and BirdLife International for funding the project.
