This is a moving and hard hitting new film on the Bay of Plenty's natural environment. 


What to expect:

  • Incredible drone imagery 
  • High quality, educational 3D animation of land use change
  • Exemplar farm system that has retired and planted 20% of the farm (reduced effective area by 20%) and increased its profitability

The 45 minute documentary is both a tribute to the beauty of the Bay of Plenty region and a wero (challenge) to councils and central government agencies to step up for communities and their environment.

There have been highly engaging panel discussions after each public viewing - people really care about this region and their country.
