Element - - Cover Story -

In­still­ing a more care­ful ap­proach to the sea into the next gen­er­a­tion should be a ma­jor pri­or­ity for an is­land na­tion like ours. Seaweek, which runs from March 3-11, is one way of en­sur­ing this hap­pens. It in­cludes a wide range of events, ac­tiv­i­ties, op­por­tu­ni­ties and com­pe­ti­tions or­gan­ised by the New Zealand As­so­ci­a­tion for En­vi­ron­men­tal Ed­u­ca­tion, all aimed at in­spir­ing ma­rine con­ser­va­tion. There’s loads go­ing on in the run-up to the week, ev­ery day dur­ing it and be­yond, in a wide va­ri­ety of lo­ca­tions. In and around Auck­land you can jump in for a com­mu­nity snorkel day at the Goat Is­land Ma­rine Re­serve on 3 March, ex­plore the beau­ti­ful Beach­lands-Marae­tai Walk­way, on 6th, or visit a re­lated art ex­hi­bi­tion at the Uxbridge Creative Cen­tre, How­ick up un­til the 8th. Fur­ther afield there’s a Maui’s Dol­phin Day and Re­cy­cled Raft Race, Te Kopua Do­main, Raglan, on March 10th and a Har­bour users clean up on the 11th. To ‹nd out more go to seaweek.org.nz
