Lake Stories Aotearoa New Zealand is a collection of personal memories, cultural knowledge and scientific information about lakes in the Wairarapa, Rangitīkei and Otago regions. It is intended to stimulate fresh conversations around enhancing lake health and mauri.
The Wairarapa Moana Kete Pūrākau focusses on Lakes Wairarapa, Onoke/Ferry, Pounui and Nganoke in the southern Wairarapa. The online portal is intended as a site for testing, trialling and reflecting upon methods of knowledge production and creation, and its design is purposefully iterative and experimental.
