Sea Week

We are devastated to learn of the passing of Dr Roger Grace, marine biologist, conservationist, photographer, mentor to many and an inspiration to everyone he met. A quiet, determined & lovely man who dedicated his life to protecting our oceans & campaigning for no take marine reserves. Roger was a good friend of Seaweek and did many talks & events for us over the last 10 years as well as donating many of his stunning images for us to use - like this one that featured on our 2014 poster. We will miss you very much Roger, it was always a pleasure to spend time with you, rest in peace. It would be fantastic if we could finally have a national network of marine reserves to be proud of as a tribute to your lifetime's work. ... See MoreSee Less

Seaweek is New Zealand’s annual national week about the sea. Hosted by the NZ Association for Environmental Education (NZAEE), Seaweek focuses on learning from the sea. It’s about exciting and inspiring all New Zealanders to renew their connections with the sea! Not just for children or those involved with formal education – it’s a time for all of us to get to know our ocean, its habitats, characteristics and inhabitants better.
