What we do

SSOSI – Sandspit SOS Inc is an independent community group dedicated to protecting the natural character and environment of Sandspit harbour, coastline and estuary.

We are predominantly (but not exclusively) residents of Sandspit and the Matakana Estuary. We have a focus on using practical solutions and also  undertake a  range of projects to advance the interests of members and our knowledge base of the local ecology.

Why join?

  • belong to a  strong social and practical network
  • enjoy getting your hands dirty to make a difference to the life of our birds, sea life and flora
  • learn more and become even more dedicated to our gorgeous environment

How to join?

We invite you to be a friend of SSOSI first, then when ready to commit, your  subscription is $20.00 per year.
