Donor funds sea ed­u­ca­tion event

Napier Courier - - News -

Thanks to the do­na­tion from an avid fish­er­man and keen boatie, Le­gaSea Hawke’s Bay was able to bring Hiwi the Kiwi back to Hawke’s Bay this month.

Mark de Lacy aka The Min­strel and Hiwi the Kiwi are al­ready well known to a gen­er­a­tion of Kiwi school chil­dren, with their road show hav­ing toured ex­ten­sively, en­ter­tain­ing and in­spir­ing tens of thou­sands of chil­dren over the past 10 years.

“Furthering the ed­u­ca­tion of our young ones in re­gard to our fish­ery and ma­rine life was some­thing our donor was pas­sion­ate about and we at Le­gaSea Hawke’s Bay are tremen­dously proud to carry this on in his hon­our,” Mark says.

Through this sup­port the Hiwi the Kiwi Goes Fish­ing project vis­ited 10 Hawke’s Bay schools from Wairoa through to Waipuku­rau, ed­u­cat­ing and in­spir­ing chil­dren on how to best en­joy, man­age, pro­tect and pre­serve the ma­rine en­vi­ron­ment.
