The vulnerability of our taonga freshwater species to a changing climate
Te Wai Māori invites you to join us for the third Te Wai Māori Freshwater Fisheries Conference.
It’s described as the greatest threat to humanity. It poses a threat to our planet, the way we live and our mātauranga. How might climate change affect our taonga freshwater species?
The third Te Wai Māori Freshwater Fisheries Conference will be held in Whangārei on 3 & 4 September 2019. The kaupapa this year is: ‘the vulnerability of our taonga freshwater species to a changing climate.’
A changing climate doesn’t just mean global warming. Within a generation we are observing more frequent and severe weather events, ocean warming and acidification, and the inability of species to adapt in a relatively short time. How might a changing climate affect our taonga freshwater species? What will this mean for our traditional relationships with those taonga? Do these relationships need to change?
