PRESS RELEASE: Karamea Estuary Enhancement Project Special Event:

What: Karamea Estuary Walkway Official Opening

Where: Entrance of Karamea Estuary Walkway Ray Street Karamea

When: Thursday March 28, 2013 at 2:00 p.m.

The Karamea Estuary Enhancement Project (KEEP) committee is a community group formed in 2006 that has been working in concert with the Department of Conservation (DOC) and other volunteer groups to restore and enhance the natural environment of the Karamea Estuary, plant trees, construct benches, erect information boards detailing the Maori and European history of the region and its ecology and build a walkway around the estuary.

The walkway provides the Karamea community with a significant asset that can be enjoyed by local people and provide visitors to the region with a meaningful physical activity replete with historical and ecological information, stunning scenery and access to the estuary and the myriad flora and fauna lifeforms it hosts. The walkway also provides for wheelchair access to the estuary enabling people who are unable to walk to also enjoy the attraction.

A stroll around the walkway is beneficial to the health by providing exercise for the body, education, relaxation and tranquillity for the mind and refreshment for the soul. Since its construction and the associated improvement in accessibility of the area, the number of people visiting the estuary has significantly increased, it is of great benefit to the people living in Karamea and a must see feature for visitors to the region.

KEEP would like to invite members of the media and public to attend the event to take a walk with us around the walkway and join with other invited guests and dignitaries to celebrate the opening of the walkway, the success of the project and the many achievements of the organisation.

Information sheets will be provided on the day and KEEP members will be available for interviews and comment. KEEP Chairman George Snowden will make a speech to officially open the walkway, light refreshments and heavy conversation will follow the chairman’s address.

Gordon Campbell:
On The Kim Regime

During the Cuban Missile Crisis, the US had a very clear objective and eventually offered a quid pro quo of the removal of some of its own missiles from Turkey. This time, there’s no clarity about what the US is seeking, or offering.

It hasn’t helped that the US and the global media consistently agree on calling North Korea and its leadership “crazy” and “irrational” and urging it to “come to its senses”. When you treat your opponent as being beyond reason, it gets hard to comprehend what their strategy is, let alone work out the terms of a viable compromise. More>>
