Our Supporters

The Marine Metre² project has been made possible thanks to our incredible community of people, schools and organisations across Aotearoa supporting our mission for New Zealand to have the best understood coastline in the world.

New Zealand Marine Studies Centre Logo

The University of Otago’s New Zealand Marine Studies Centre developed Marine Metre Squared in 2013. The centre provides expert knowledge and education about New Zealand’s marine environment. The educational programmes involve students in the excitement of scientific discovery, develop knowledge and skills and encourage individuals to take responsibility and action for the future of our ocean resource.

Coastal People Southern Skies Logo

Coastal People: Southern Skies (CPSS), Centre for Research Excellence, connects communities across Aotearoa New Zealand and the South Pacific with world-leading, cross-disciplinary research to support transformative change to rebuild our fragile coastal ecosystems. Coastal people face the consequences of changing climate, but also hold the hope, knowledge, and potential to build resilience for their places and ways of life in a changing climate. Central to CPSS is developing leaders of tomorrow, so alongside the research programmme is an active outreach programme to engage rangatahi and provide tools and opportunities to increase their understanding of their local environment. Marine Metre² is one of the projects they are supporting through the publication of the seashore guides.
