CARIM at Karitane
Discussions with the Puketeraki Nga Waka Club and Ngai Tahu about CARIM have assisted the location and the maintenance of pH sensors and sampling at Karitane. We expect to further develop this collaborative relationship as the project proceeds.
We're thrilled to be working in this way on this project. Check back here for updates as the project progresses.
A distinctive element of sampling at Karitane is the use of waka to travel to the monitoring site to collect samples. The combination of using traditional transportation methods with modern science is aiding engagement and community participation in this location.
Monitoring at Karitane
Divers were used to install monitoring equipment to look at ocean conditions (including pH and temperature) during the CARIM project.
The region of the sea beyond the point at Karitane is ecologically, culturally and economically important to local residents. This is also where our sampling and monitoring focus is.
