The Undersea World
This sea has some amazing stories to tell, and we'll do our best to share all these stories with you. We will publish feature stories about places, people, marine environments and biodiversity. You can hear from some of New Zealand's most respected marine commentators. If you are new to the marine environment, you are in for a real treat. NZ’s marine is so diverse and complex that we will never run ut of stories to tell. For those already knowledgeable on the marine world, we hope to show you new ideas and experiences, and we encourage you to share your stories with us too.
Find out now - before it's too late
We also promise to cover contemporary marine environment issues. The ocean has reached an important turning point - it is the last unknown wilderness on this planet. With that turning point comes a challenge for humans. We need to make the transition from exploiting seemingly infinite natural resources to careful stewardship of our resources. We also need to restore degraded habitats and ecosystems, and work to protect and conserve our marine environment for future generations.
This process is only just beginning and we know time is limited before any damage becomes irreversible. At MarineNZ, we promise to do our job professionally, and as honestly and fairly as possible. However we do say from the outset that our emphasis will be on raising awareness about the ecology of marine environments, and showing people how we can work together to achieve an ecologically sustainable future for the Sea. At MarineNZ, we strongly feel that there needs to be much discussion now about what this actually means.
Take a look around - you won't get bored!
There is so much to say and report about the beautiful Undersea World! We will do our best to show you the mysteries of the ocean. We are keen and have a first rate team of people contributing to this project. We would love to hear from you - tell us about contributions that you would like to make, or people that you would like to put us in contact with.
Most of all, we hope you enjoy what we are bringing to you in this section, and we hope you are inspired to make the Sea a bigger part of your life in the future.
