The Hawke's Bay marine environment, and efforts being being made to protect it, will be highlighted at Seaweek Sunday on 7 March.
Being held at Perfume Point in Ahuriri, it will feature games, a treasure hunt, snorkelling lessons, an obstacle course, a short film, demonstrations, competitions, face painting and more!
Other activities and events being held in Hawke's Bay during Seaweek range from beach and underwater clean-ups to a poetry competition and Tai Chi lessons by the coast.
Hawke's Bay Seaweek coordinator Gabriela Gomez Fell says New Zealanders are being urged to think about their contribution to sustainable fishing during this year's Seaweek, with the theme Fish for the future (tiakina nga tupuranga whakaheke) chosen to raise awareness of the role of fish in healthy oceans.
Seaweek’s host organization, the New Zealand Association for Environmental Education (NZAEE), has opted for a more challenging series of themes over the next five years to facilitate greater learning about the marine environment.
“One of the aims of education for sustainability is to encourage people to learn for themselves and in the lead up to and during Seaweek there will be many opportunities to do just that”, says Gabriela Gomez Fell.
