Seasick - Saving the Hauraki Gulf

Film (Trailer) – 2023

Seasick shines a light on the dire state of the Hauraki Gulf, New Zealand's only marine park. Decades of pollution and fishing have degraded a once diverse marine ecosystem. In this trailer scientists, divers and tangata whenua who respect the gulf as a food basket and place of recreation express dismay at its condition. Environment Minister David Parker promises action and regrets lost preservation opportunities. Local iwi and Green MP Chlöe Swarbrick advocate for traditional Māori protection methods to reverse the damage. Seasick is  both a feature-length documentary and a seven-part web series.

There are very few places in the world that have life like we have here in the Hauraki Gulf on the back door step of a large city like Auckland.
