Te Nekenekehanga ki Waipa

Kua kohia etahi pipi, kua hikina atu ki Waipa. No te ata nei i puta atu nga tauira o Te Puna Matauranga me Te Wharekura o Mauao ki Waipa. I reira a Matua Caine me tona ropu awhina.
heoi ano te mahi he ruirui haere i etahi pipi ki nga tahuna o waho o Waipa. I tae atu hoki a Tame Kuka, nana te karakia i whakarite me te kauhau mai i etahi korero mo te wa o mua. Kaore i roa kua oti te mahi ki roto i te wai, ara, te ruirui haere i nga pipi kua kohia mai i Paritaha.
He tino mihi na matau o te Puna Matauranga ki nga kaihautu o tenei kaupapa, ara a Whaea Waiaria raua ko Matua Caine. E ai ki te korero "Ka mate te iwi mehemea kaore he matakitetanga".

Waipa

No te Paraire kua taha ake nei, i haere matau o TPM ki Waipa. Ko te take, he tirotiro haere i nga tahuna o reira mehemea he pai, he kore pai ranei taua wahi ra mo te pipi. Ahakoa te korero he tahuna pipi o mua tata ake nei, kua ahua heke haere nga pipi o naianei. E ai ki etahi na te tino tata ki uta i pera ai, he ngawari hoki te tiki atu i nga pipi. Na reira, mehemea ka whakataua ko Waipa hei kainga noho, me kaha te tiaki, me te manaaki, kei raruraru te kaupapa nei. Waimarie te hanga nei i a Caine raua ko Waiaria, me o raua kaiawhina. Kua whai tikanga nga tamariki nei kia uru atu ki te ao putaiao o nga pakeke. Ngahau ana te ra nei, me te mihi nui rawa atu ki nga matua, whaea hoki i whai wa ki te piri mai ki o matau nei taha mo tenei ra.

Wananga Pipi - Tutereinga

I tera wiki i tu tetahi kaupapa ki te marae o Tutereinga, mo te pipi te take. Ataahua ana nga korero i puta, nga korero a nga kaumatua i tae atu ki te hui ra, nga korero o te ao putaiao, me nga korero i whangaia mai e nga matua. Ka nui te mihi ki a koutou ra.

Te Puna Matauranga have been given an opportunity to participate in the relocation of pipi from Te Paritaha, the place where dredging will take place soon. We want to see if we can successfully relocate some pipi into the Te Puna area. Follow us on our journey of discovery and experimentation over the next few weeks
