There are various small communities throughout the Marlborough Sounds, which Council works with to find out what's happening, to address issues and to deal with any concerns. This is done through the Sounds Advisory Group (SAG)
The Marlborough Sounds Restoration Trust is a voluntary group that works with the Marlborough District Council, land-owners and DOC to prevent the spread of wild pine trees.
'Sounds Advice' is an annual Council newsletter to keep you in touch with what’s happening to protect and enhance the Sounds environment.
