The Guardians want to know what matters to you when it comes to the future of the Fiordland Marine Area.

We invite you to join us at our Forum to share your thoughts, observations, values and concerns about this precious part of the world. Through a mix of a panel Q&A session and more casual mingling, we hope you’ll learn a bit more about the work we do in the area, and in turn, we’ll learn from you. Your input will help us to direct our efforts in the future.

We’d appreciate your views on some matters that we’ve been grappling with lately:
- Growth in tourism/visitor numbers
- Pest Pathways Plan/invasive species
- Whether there is a place for aquaculture in Fiordland
- How to engage more effectively with the community

Our 2015/16 Annual Report gives the comprehensive insight into our recent efforts.

It can be downloaded from the website or contact Anne McDermott:

- Changes to the Guardians membership

- Presentation of the Fiordland Marine Pathways Plan to Environment Southland Councillors
- Exploration of deep water habitats in Fiordland and marine reserve monitoring
- New Zealand Navy and joint agency visit to Fiordland
- Guardians visit the Beehive
- Heritage New Zealand Listings in Fiordland
- The ongoing response to eradicate Undaria from Sunday Cove
- Submissions on the new Marine Protected Areas Act

We look forward to catching up with you all on Thursday 23rd February.
Rebecca, Jon, Anne, Ken, Stewart, Kerri-Anne, Jerry and Mark (The Fiordland Marine Guardians).
