Ocean plastics field trip

After spending the previous day immersed in revolutionising the plastics system, we invite you to learn up-close about what happens to plastics when they travel down through our landscape and end up in our freshwater and marine ecosystems.

SBN have partnered with Auckland Whale & Dolphin Safari to take you on a deep dive into ocean plastics out on the waters of the Hauraki Gulf.

You’ll hear from expert speakers on the local-to-global scale of the impacts of plastics in the ocean. Auckland Whale & Dolphin Safari’s Ocean Health Module will get you up close and personal with what’s actually in the waters of the Hauraki Gulf.

Speakers include:

  • Devina Shetty: Institute of Marine Science, University of Auckland
  • Camden Howitt: Co-Founder, Sustainable Coastlines
  • Phil Jones: Gulf X programme Lead, Sustainable Business Network

Auckland Whale & Dolphin Safari won the Restoring Nature award at the 2018 NZI Sustainable Business Network Awards. They put marine conservation and responsible tourism at the heart of everything they do.

The Ocean Plastics Field Trip will take place on Tuesday 27 August from 8.45am-12.30pm. The trip is out on the Auckland Whale & Dolphin Safari boat.
