Hauraki Gulf Forum Poster

The New Zealand Herald in association with the Hauraki Gulf Forum is proud to bring you the 2019 Hauraki Gulf Marine Park Poster. The 2019 poster highlights the vast scope of the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park, scaling the boundary; where it begins and ends.

Discover the diversity of life from land to sea as we delve into the Hauraki Gulf / Tīkapa Moana, the array of creatures, terrestrial and marine, who inhabit the Gulf, and threats to them like sediment and overfishing. Illustrated by internationally renowned artist Dave Gunson.

Life Between the Tides Poster

Life Between the Tides is a new poster produced by the New Zealand Marine Studies Centre. It illustrates the strange and amazing marine animals and plants that are found on the rocky shore and in rock pools at low tide. Sixty-three species are included in the image. Will you be able to find them all?  The poster is designed to be printed at 84cm wide x 30cm tall. The key gives common, scientific and Māori names. Download the Life Between the Tides poster here (PDF file, 4.4 MB)

The poster is the result of a collaboration with an artist from California!  In 2011 Corlis Schneider came to the NZ Marine Studies Centre as an intern from the Monterey Bay School of Scientific Illustration.  Corlis’s project was to design and illustrate an educational colouring book. The completed workbook: “Who Eats Who on the Rocky Shore” was printed in 2012, and since then has been reprinted twice more and has also been translated into te reo Māori.  (You can find pdf files of these books on the resources pages on the University of Otago’s Marine Studies Centre)

We had the Seaweek flag out this weekend at the Browns Bay Beach Clean-Up, a Sustainable Coastlines event in collaboration with Sir Peter Blake Marine Education and Recreation Centre.

We have started to update our trusty old website with some events now, so if you are hosting an event please get in touch! Anyone else do some beach cleaning this weekend?
