Work has begun readying the site and surrounds for the Camera Obscura to be built on Pohe Island, upstream from Te Matau a Pohe.

Mangroves will be selectively culled to ensure the Camera Obscura has a view of the bridge and fill is being loaded onto the build site for the camera, pre-loading it to compress the ground and ensure it is strong enough to hold the structure when it is built.
