Foundation North provided the New Zealand Association for Environmental Education (NZAEE) with funding in 2017 for a citizen science seashore montoiroing programme in the Hauraki Gulf, Auckland using the Marine Metre Squared project as an extension of Seaweek 2017 into place-based action.
The Hauraki Gulf Monitoring Project (HGMP) is now entering its fourth year and we would love you to be involved! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more information. You can also read through the reports prepared by the NZAEE below or have a look at some of the discoveries made by students involved in the HGMP under our 'Community Stories' section
2021 Hauraki Gulf Monitoring Project
Teresa Morrell will be leading the 2021 HGMP. Teresa is an educator with the NZ Marine Studies Centre and a PhD student in the Marine Science Department. She grew up West Auckland and has spent a lot of time on and in the waters of the Hauraki Gulf. Teresa introduces herself here. She is studying the effect of the chemicals associated with microplastics on the reproduction of small, but important, fishes and will be a great addition to the team. Find out about Teresa's research.
Activities related specifically to the HGMP are included below. Further activities can be found the Mm2 resource page.
