#BIODIVERSITY | The site of NZ’s worst ecological marine disaster is to become a training ground for marine biologists, thanks to Minister of Conservation Kiritapu Allan approving the Bay of Plenty Regional Coastal Environment Plan on March 1. This will create protection areas near Mōtītī Island, including Astrolabe Reef where the Rena ran aground in 2012.
