Marine Symposium

Would you like to better understand Fiordland’s marine environment?

The Guardians and Department of Conservation invite you to join us for a special afternoon in Te Anau, where marine scientists will be sharing their latest findings and insights.

A series of short talks will cover all your favourite (and not so favourite) critters – whales, dolphins, penguins, rock lobster and invasive species – what we are learning about their behaviour, movements, and responses to changing ocean conditions. Scientists will then delve into the physical world, bringing you the latest information about marine heat waves, how water circulates in the depths of the fiords, how the Manapouri hydro outflow is monitored, and how scientists are beginning to appreciate the huge role that Fiordland has in permanently removing greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.

Meet the scientists, be part of the conversation, and learn how scientific findings help the Guardians and agencies to manage this place for the future.

This is a free event, as part of Sea Week. We hope to see you there!


Tuesday 5th March, 1pm – 5pm
