EMR is a national programme of experiential learning about marine conservation. Te Kura Moana - the school of the ocean. We increase awareness and encourage action and support for marine conservation.
We are established in eight regions of New Zealand with up to 28 coordinators. We have a sister programme in one state of Australia.
We provide schools and their communities with the expertise and knowledge to experience their local marine environment first-hand, fostering kaitiakitanga.
