Experiencing Marine Reserves (EMR) is a national programme of experiential learning about marine conservation. Our EMR - Te Kura Moana programme empowers schools and communities by providing hands-on experience in the ocean. Delivered by an EMR coordinator the programme is designed to set the kids abuzz before progressing to developing their snorkelling skills in a pool then heading to the real marine environment. We increase awareness and encourage action and support for marine conservation.

The EMR brand is unique; we have an active focus on community engagement and marine conservation. We are committed to delivering safe snorkel excursions and we are adventure activity safety audit certified (AAO 534). The national expansion of EMR is based on a non-profit franchise concept. EMR is a programme of the charity - Mountains to Sea Conservation Trust  (CC #23406)  

Since 2001, EMR has taken 70928 people through NZ marine reserves, we have guided snorkel experiences for 132478 people.  The total number of kiwi’s engaged in EMR is now 182471!
