Let's get 10,000 kiwis under the water - Titiro ki te Moana - 2021

$765 of $10,000 goal
Given by 9 generous donors in around 6 months

Please help us to raise funds for our upcoming adventure activity safety audit accreditation and get 10,000 kiwis under the water!


The Experiencing Marine Reserves (EMR) programme started in Taitokerau/Northland in 2001 with the idea of taking local schools to see unprotected marine areas and comparing them to a fully protected marine reserve. Seeing huge Tamure/snapper swimming by in a marine reserve has inspired thousands of kids to take action for the marine environment and exercise kaitiakitanga.

Since 2001, EMR has guided 70928 people through marine reserves and 132478 have been snorkelling with us all over Aotearoa. We offer community guided snorkel day events and school programmes throughout our nine regions.

Now, more than ever, we feel it's important for kiwi kids and their whanau to get out and experience what is under the sea, in their local backyard. We hope to inspire new marine conservation projects and underwater observations, but most importantly we hope that people will fall in love with ‘te moana’, the sea!
