Annual Poor Knights Competition Trip 2018

Marine kaitiaki guardians from the Far North to Otago are rewarded with Poor Knights snorkel experience!

The 17th annual EMR Poor Knights competition trip took place on Friday the 18th May. The trip was organised by Experiencing Marine Reserves (EMR) and made up of representative students from each school that participates in the programme from Northland and Auckland, as well as 2 representatives from the other 6 regions EMR is operating including Taranaki, Coromandel, Gisborne, Wellington, Nelson and Otago.

Whananaki School at the Poor Knights

Whananaki School have been partcipating in the Experiencing Marine Reserves (EMR) programme during term 1, and recently experienced the magical Poor Knights Islands.

Seaweek Ocean Champion Samara Nicholas explains the programme “EMR is about engageing the whole community in marine conservation, Foundation North provided the funding to support the schools participation in EMR”

Mathesons Bay Relocated

Due to poor weather conditions we are relocating to the beautiful Whangateau Harbour. Registrations will be from 10am to 2pm to match the tide. Park beside the playground past the Whangateau Holiday Park.

Support the Rahui roll over in the Bay Of Islands

Please join EMR  in supporting the hugely successful Ngati Kuta and Patukeha led environmental protection of Maunganui Bay (Deep Water Cove).
The existing rahui has protected marine life in Maunganui Bay since 2010. However, it is due to expire on 29 October 2018. The hapu's request to Fisheries NZ (MPI) will extend the existing rahui for a further 2 years. EMR has snorkelled in this Rahui and it is awesome and we would love to see the protection continued
