Experience the wonders of your local marine environment or marine reserve! The EMR programme organises Community Guided Snorkel Days around the country. We provide free hire for all the snorkel equipment and provide experienced snorkel guides to lead your discovery.
The purpose is to provide an inspirational professional development and networking opportunity for all those involved or interested in freshwater and marine conservation. Usually held in April, in Northland every second year and other parts of NZ every other year. Our theme changes each wananga. Our theme for 2021 is 'partnerships' and will be held in Kennedy Bay, Coromandel from Wednesday 21st to Friday 23rd April.
