Titahi Bay is a beautiful one kilometre long beach in Porirua. The legendary Polynesian navigator Kupe landed at Komanga Point, 3 kilometres west of Titahi Bay, leaving an anchor stone which today can be seen at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. The area was settled by Maori for many years before the arrival of Europeans, and several pa sites are located nearby. The name Titahi means Ti: cabbage tree and Tahi: one.
Plastic is the most prevalent type of marine debris found in our ocean. Plastic debris can come in all shapes and sizes, but those that are less than five millimeters in length (or about the size of a sesame seed) are called microplastics. Microplastics are mistaken as food by birds and marine creatures which can make them very sick.
