Thank-you for bringing your fantastic Seaweek pictures into the Wellington Libraries and sharing them with us. We were swept away by amazing picture that you all did. Big congratulations to all those who took part and especially to our winners. Here is a wonderful picture from one of our winners, Tilly from Karori.
Our other winners from Karori were Abby (left), pictured with the Finding Dory Playset she won, and Keddie holding her book.

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!
For more information about Seaweek including a list of local and national events, visit their website seaweek.org.nz.
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.
