A stunning new visual roadshow of the underwater world will be visiting the Bay of Islands during NZAEE Seaweek, February 26 – 6 March 2011.

Internationally renowned marine photographer and biologist Dr Roger Grace will present his experiences during two decades with Greenpeace to highlight life below the sea.

The roadshow will also feature images from Dr Grace’s work in Northland, providing a local context for the presentations and discussion, says regional co-ordinator Sioux Campbell.

“The idea came from the excellent response we had here from The End of the Line movie, which was launched in New Zealand in Seaweek last year. People were very keen to hear more about what was happening locally and we thought it was a fantastic opportunity to showcase someone like Roger, who has both worldwide and local experiences.”

Hosted by Fish Forever (the marine reserve campaign action group of Bay of Islands Maritime Park Inc.), the presentation will be held at Copthorne Hotel, Waitangi at 6pm on Monday February 28. Free entry.
