Seaweek 2014 – bring in your favourite photos of the sea!

New Zealand Seaweek 2014 runs from 1-9 March and is an annual celebration of our ocean, its habitats and the cool creatures that dwell there!  This year the theme for Seaweek is  “Our fragile, finite taonga – be alert to the fragility of the marine environment and its treasures. Kia mataara! Tiakina te au o te moana, he kōpīpī tōna”.

Hosted by the NZ Association for Environmental Education (NZAEE), Seaweek is an opportunity to learn more about ocean life and encourages exploration and discovery.  Check out your local rock-pools, participate in a coastal clean-up, have a go at an ocean sport like snorkeling or visit a marine ecology lab!  There’s heaps happening in Wellington for Seaweek – so rally your friends and family together and get involved!

To celebrate Seaweek we want to display your photos in the central library.

With the weather improving this is a great opportunity to take out your camera! We would love to have your favourite piece(s) of work admired by library visitors. If you’re interested in sending us your photos, take them to the Information Desk at the Central Library, where you’ll see the blue Seaweek box until 28 February.

Please write your name and contact details on the back of the photo(s) so that we can make sure they go back to the right person. Check out some rules first.
