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

Ocean Champion Winners

Ocean Champion Winners

Lorella Doherty from Taranaki challenged herself to pick up 10,000 cigarette butts during the 10 days of Seaweek. Not only did she achieve that but she was also voted the winner of our Senior Ocean Champion award & received $500 to support her work thanks to the New Zealand Coastal Society. Here she is collecting her award from the NZ Coastal Society’s Paul Klinac at our Bill Ballantine Memorial Lecture event in Auckland.
   
Our 3 Junior Ocean Champion winners were Room 6 Brooklyn School Motuka, Tī Kōuka Class Waiheke Primary School and Room 4 Makauri School Gisborne. They each won a selection of fantastic spot prizes from Auckland Whale and Dolphin Safari and the Auckland Outboard Boating Club. Thanks to everyone who entered and congratulations to all our winners.
