Our underwater world
New Zealanders love the ocean. It is beautiful and diverse, teeming with a fantastic array of sea life. Our team at MarineNZ are all actively involved in marine conservation and education. We believe NZ needs a website that can bring the NZ marine environment to your computer. We also believe that we can all do more to restore and protect marine life and being amongst it even virtually on your computer is a starting point. It will be an adventure in discovery for all us. In time we hope to involve many of you in building and using this site. We have many ideas on the drawing board.
MarineNZ.org will become a virtual marine online world, full of stunning underwater photography, videography and leading marine biology reports and presentations. There are tools for students, teachers and all those interested in our marine environment. There’s also information on our streams and rivers, and how they interact with our beaches and oceans. Tour our site to find out more. You can also register, which will allow you to make comments and receive our newsletters.
Take the time to get involved with our new online community where you’ll meet others working marine conservation, science and education. Share your passions and ideas, ask questions and take part in active discussion.
MarineNZ gives all New Zealanders access to the beauty beneath the Sea. Dive in and enjoy.
