SUSTAINABLE COASTLINES

SUSTAINABLE COASTLINES

Eleventh Annual Ball is ON. YOU CAN HELP!

Here’s a chance to get some support for your brand through NZ Fishing World’s social media, and give a little back to the good folks at Sustainable Coastlines, not to mention getting along to the annual ball for a few Coronas, and a good time.

In the recreational fishing industry, either accidentally or otherwise, we account for plastic bait bags, soft bait bodies, fishing line, and other such goodies ending up in the ocean.

Now you can show some support for the good people that do the hard mahi literally cleaning up our coastlines, focusing on the prevention of plastic in the ocean, restoration of our waterways, education (predominantly youth), litter data collection, biodiversity, and well-being through enhanced connection to nature and your community.

We are looking for some decent prizes for the team to auction at the event, so if you are a company wanting to make a difference, I’m sure any prize you can offer would be gratefully appreciated by these good people.

Anything outdoor or fishing related, or even unrelated would be well received and help a great charity to continue their thankless work.

In return, you get your item displayed on the night either as a product or in an A3 Poster and included in the auction catalogues on every table, which will be in front of roughly 450 like-minded salty sea dogs.  

A social media post going out to their 14K Instagram, and 23K FB followers.

NZ Fishing World will also chip in by publicising your donation and sharing the occasional social media post you have via our 80K strong Facebook page.

Most importantly you get to pat yourself on the back for supporting this very worthy cause that looks after the coastlines and waterways we all love.

The ball is on the 17th of November at Shed 10, and you can get more info re tickets right HERE

If you would like to donate prizes either contact the team directly or NZ Fishing World at info@nzfishingworld.co.nz.
