The EMR Programme

The aim of EMR is to raise awareness, understanding and involvement in marine conservation through provision of dynamic experiential environmental education opportunities.

  • Since 2002, we have given 25,312 school children a guided snorkelling experience within a marine reserve. 
  • Our marine education programme increases awareness and encourages action and support for marine conservation.
  • We are based in eight regions in NZ and one state of Australia and have a team of 16 co-ordinators.
