Conservation Volunteers New Zealand (CVNZ) are collaborating with the Tamaki Estuary Environmental Forum (TEEF) to lead a series of clean ups around the Tāmaki Estuary.

Litter, particularly plastic, has a major impact on wildlife with birds and fish becoming entangled or mistaking the litter for food, eating the plastic and feeding it to their young.

As the plastic breaks into small fragments in the water it leaches potentially toxic chemicals into our rivers and seas, threatening our ocean wildlife and us.
