Help us fight the Goliath of big money taking our beautiful bay for a private marina. Funds to be used to appeal to the environment court.
It is our responsibility to protect and preserve our natural taonga.
We believe the water belongs to all the people and no one should own it. It is for all to share and enjoy.
One of our beautiful bays will be lost forever if this marina goes ahead.
Help STOP beautiful Kennedy bay on Waiheke Island from being despoiled by a private marina development.
This is our back door. One of our main arteries. There's 4 schools in the main road with more than 1000 students and families on that road every week day, twice daily at least. Shelley Beach - one of our popular swimming beaches is just around the corner. The area has significant historical and environmental values. There's rich Maori history in this area as well.
Waiheke Island is one of the jewels in the middle of the Hauraki Gulf Maritime Park. We need to protect it.

Funds raised will be used to pay legal fees and environmental studies to oppose the construction of a marina in Kennedy Point.
