Marine Mammal Discovery Day

This outreach event aims to bring together scientists, members of the community, tour operators, managers and other marine folks for a day of learning and kōrero about cetaceans.

There will be presentations from a range of experts, a panel discussion about ‘Whales and dolphins in a changing world' and a series of interactive activities and displays.


A light lunch (vegan and GF) and afternoon tea will be provided – a koha to cover these costs is appreciated but not required.
