    Event description

    To celebrate World Ocean Day we are bringing together people that are passionate and curious about the ocean - and inviting everyone that are interested in learning more about their big blue backyard.

    Join us at MERC for an event featuring:
    • An opportunity to meet new people, connect with your community, and learn about restoration projects which are underway in the Gulf.
    • An open invite to join in on a water activity or group swim (sea state dependent) to reap the benefits of physically connecting with our sea despite winter water temps, set to occur between 5 & 5:15 pm, coinciding with sunset at 5:12 pm.
    • This will be followed by warm showers for those that need them, and an offering of hot drinks and warm food inside the MERC hall.
    • The seminar portion of the event will start at 6:30 with plenty of time for questions and networking afterwards.


    Presentations will feature insight from marine scientists, community leaders and other passionate people in the marine conservation & restoration space.

    More details on guest speakers and presentations to come at a later date! Check our facebook event page or website for more information.

    This event is part of the Ngā Kōrero series, brought to you by MERC & Seaweek with support from the NZ National Commission for UNESCO.
