What is it that inspired this project? For us, it is the ocean. Growing up on the coast, we are a crew that have developed a love for the ocean, and with that, a passion to solve the issues that threaten it's beauty. We strive to create a stronger awareness of the issue of ocean pollution, and how people's bad habits contribute to it. We believe that all New Zealanders should have a passion for this issue. Why? In Aotearoa you can never be more than 120 kilometres from the coast. The ocean is literally on our doorstep and therefore it is our responsibility to look after it!

Where do we fit into the problem?
"The world’s oceans – their temperature, chemistry, currents and life – drive global systems that make the Earth habitable for humankind."
A little crew of ocean lovers trying to make a difference. Here at Project Wai we aim to build a community which protects and sustains Aotearoa’s oceans!
