What is Wai Care all about?
It’s about caring for our waterways and catchments.
It’s about communities taking action.
It’s about all of us learning together and caring for ‘our place’
It’s about kaitiakitanga.
Wai Care is a water quality monitoring, education and action programme for community groups, individuals, businesses and schools across the Auckland region. The Wai Care programme is about all of us, young and old, doing our bit to learn about and take care of local waterways and catchments.
Every week we go down to the stream near our school and test the water. We do tests to check the water clarity, Ph levels, temp and the dissolved oxygen. We also check to see what Invertebrates are living in our community streams.
