What does kararehe whakawatea mean?

Though there are differing dialects within te reo, kararehe whakawatea means the emergency evacuation of animals. Whakawatea means getting out when everything is in a panic. As part of being a signatory to the Code of Conduct for the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and NGOs for disaster relief, we value and respect the customs of those we provide aid to. In a practical sense, this means we value the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi and the sacred value animals have within Maoridom.
