Community Feedback

It’s one of the best email newsletters I receive, as it’s a great way to keep a finger on the pulse of the environmental scene in Aotearoa. I like knowing about what other organisations are doing, and about what submissions and consultation are current or coming up – and deadlines. Kia kaha ki ngā mahi!

You do a fantastic job. I live in Australia and this is the only way I can stay in tune with what is happening and important in New Zealand, thank you!

Tieke reader

Tieke is one of my best and my personal favourite resources of environmental news in Aotearoa. Thank you for your incredible hard work. It is particularly the topics that are outside my own areas of expertise that are very appealing. The newsletter is very well written and gives a good, yet succinct background on many important matters. Please keep up the good work!
