Te Akau ki Papamoa - Te Tahuna o Rangataua

General update
Statistical information as part of the daily Media release from Maritime NZ is attached and will be attached daily to keep you up to date with facts and figures.

The Rena is still intact but rough seas have made it impossible to board or do fly overs for observation.

Hub leaders hui today confirmed that all hubs are operating well. No oil has been found on Tuhua despite earlier fears. We have asked for observation reports for the other islands Karewa, Motuhoa, Moturiki.

We are now starting to also focus on monitoring and testing water quality and environment the process is still being developed and Matire and Hinenui will be attending these meetings on our behalf.

Kepa Morgan is still keen to test properties of Muka on clean up and we are willing to trial it. We are waiting for the flax stripper to arrive from up north.

Hinenui’s update
Monitoring in our zones confirms that Rangataua remains clear.
Training will re-commence at Tamapahore on Friday 11am

We have been advised that ICC has scaled down its operation within the command centre confident that should things need to ramp up that ICC can respond accordingly. In response the Iwi Liaison team has also down sized its team to 5 - the Iwi Team Leader, Iwi Liaison- Motiti, Iwi Liason- Tauranga Moana, Admin(TPK/Regional/local Council) and TMIRU- Tauranga Moana Iwi Recovery Unit. There have been no more Area Hub meetings which are usually attended by hapu, Iwi co-ordinators.

Clean up crews have been out along Papamoa to Te Tumu.

Big thank you to the many helpers who came from Auckland last weekend and stayed at Tamapahore. The shared morning brunch was a nice touch and everyone enjoyed it.

A big thank you to Whanau at Tahuwhakatiki for hosting our Whanau and Tamariki from Motiti this past week so the kids can continue with school at Te Kura Kokiri at the old Papamoa School.

Colin has contacted DOC with respect to the wildlife centre at Te Maunga and best ways to dispose of the deceased wildlife. This ties in with the work that Matire is doing with respect to the deceased whales. Matire and Dean Flavell will be talking with Jack Thatcher in ICC to arrange a hui to discuss the options to find the best way forward. This will be an open process so a recommended approach can be presented to the relevant authorities and wider public. What ever eventuates we would like this to be as inclusive as possible given that the kaupapa touches everyone.

This Friday 11 November 10am Tahuwhakatiki Marae will host the Te Moana a Toi Iwi leaders Forum. These hui are held weekly at various marae and are a means of direct communication from Maritime NZ and local Maori. They are very well attended by Iwi from Pare Hauraki to Whanau a Apanui – all coastal tribes. All are welcome to attend.

Hinenui’s update
All zones in Rangataua are clear. Training continues at Tamapahore as are deployment of clean up crews.
