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

And the winners are…

And the winners are…

Huge congratulations to the winners of our two national Seaweek competitions and thanks to everyone who entered, the judges found it really hard to decide.
The winner of the Fish4all photo competition was Happy Steps Early Learning Centre at Dargaville who thoroughly enjoyed their seafood BBQ prize.

The winner of the Experiencing Marine Reserves video competition was Anna Parson from Aramoana with her video called My Local Marine Life. You can watch it here: https://youtu.be/lpG7a0V2EYk

Anna won a wetsuit from Wettie, so no doubt she will be spending even more time exploring her local marine life in future!

Makauri School from Gisborne also won the class prize in the EMR video competition with this entry: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=10&v=FT6rovSfiU4

Congratulations to all our winners and THANK YOU to our national competition sponsors Fish4all and Experiencing Marine Reserves – we couldn’t do it without you!

 

Seaweek 2019 Event Report Winners

We challenged everyone who attended a Seaweek 2019 event to submit an Event Report and tell us what they thought about it. Thanks to everyone who took the time to do that, we get some really useful data that we use to let our sponsors know how successful Seaweek is.

We did a prize draw from all those entries and the winner of the Participant Evaluation prize is Vicki Smith from Nelson who attended the EMR Cable Bay Snorkel Day.
The winning Event Coordinator is Jenny Baker from Napier who organised the Hawkes Bay Beach Clean-up.
The winning Regional Coordinator is Nataalia Lunson from DOC in Bay of Plenty West who put on a fantastic programme of events in her first year as a Seaweek Regional Coordinator.

All our winners will receive a copy of Sally Carson & Rod Morris’s fantastic book The Collins Guide to the New Zealand Seashore, which is a must have for every home & classroom. Congratulations everyone! Huge thanks to Harper Collins Publishers for donating the books for us to give away.
