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.

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.

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)
