"We've reached that low where we just had to act, and now we are. All around the Gulf, government's acting, council's acting, communities, mana whenua, all showing leadership." 

Is the environmental mess we find ourselves in due to our drift from nature? We look at our relationship to nature and whether greed is partly responsible for the gulf’s deterioration. And what is being done to save the Hauraki Gulf?

We look at stories of hope, who should be driving the future of environmentalism, what could be achieved and what you can do to play a part in saving this ecological treasure.
