As I’ve mentioned before, a huge part of eco tourism is doing our bit to look after papatuanuku (Mother Earth). So when other people leave stink packets of rotten bait, plastic waste, fishing lines and Paru socks. Yes socks! YOU PICK THEM UP. Proud to be part of a community that believes in sustainability and looking after our slice of paradise. #ecotourism #cleanupouroceans #tipunatours
Today was one of the best tours I’ve ever done. 4 Canadians and 1 Italian. Their friendliness, willingness to try new things and knowledge and interest about eco-systems, geology and wildlife was so refreshing!
I just loved my day with them despite the immense tooth ache pain up the side of my face. But overall, this is one of those days where the company Makes it all worth it.
Roberto, Bonnie, Lucy, Robert and Cara. Come back to Uawa any day!

Today in our travels, we stopped at the tairawhiti Environment Centre and I was so glad we did, honestly it is just a little treasure trove!
They sell all things nice and natural from deodorant to dish scrubbers, lady products and beeswax wraps! right here in sunny little gizzy on Palmerston rd. I think I thought it was like a recycling place! Well it ain’t. Lol.
Anyway, you are also able to hire a bunch of different pest traps here, so you pay a bond and then your bond is returned once the trap is returned. The kind people who work here are also able to give you a run down of hot to use everything. So if you’re in need or just bored, pop on down for a visit! I will definitely be back!
Part of cultural eco-tourism is doing our bit to look after the place so it will be here for visitors and tangata whenua (people of the land) to appreciate in years to come.
Today we teamed up with DOC and the Tairawhiti Environmental Centre to learn about pest trapping and looking after native trees and species in our parks and reserves. It is quite exciting! @docgovtnz
We have been given a little project to tiaki (look after) a small patch of ngahere (forest) so for the next couple of months you will be seeing more of us weeding, trapping and enjoying ourselves out in the wild 🤙🌱🌿🍃 #environmentalist #outinthebush #tiakitaiao #nz
Get that blood pumping with a guided hikoi (walk) up to Te Pourewa - The Beacon of Light in Uawa!
Take in the impressive views of the bay whilst hearing all about our local stories.
