Message from Mayor Phil Goff

Publish Date : 31 Aug 2018

In September, Auckland Council shines a light on some of our local heroes who fight to protect our region’s precious native species and habitats.

During Conservation Week (15-23 September), we’ll be celebrating the work of Aucklanders who demonstrate excellence in conservation with the first Mayoral Conservation Awards.

Our environment is precious and I’m proud to recognise those who work so hard to protect it.

This month we are also working with Housing First Auckland to carry out Ira Mata, Ira Tangata: Auckland’s Homeless Count. It’s the first region-wide count of people living without shelter in Auckland, and will deliver important data we need to better understand the shape and scale of homelessness in our city. It will inform our planning and policymaking and help us work with our communities towards ending homelessness in Auckland.

Have a great month.
