Litter survey helps shape project to tackle harbour rubbish

The thousands of pieces of litter collected during a survey of Porirua’s harbour area is helping to shape a major new programme to tackle the problem of harbour pollution. 

As part of their visit to Wellington for the Aspiring Leaders’ Forum, a group of 150 young people aged between 18 and 30 recently helped to collect and survey the amount of rubbish entering Te Awarua o Porirua Harbour.
