EMR is a national programme of experiential learning about marine conservation.

As an extension of EMR’s programme with schools, EMR developed the free Community Guided Snorkel Days. Support from the Bobby Stafford-Bush Foundation has allowed EMR to expand the Community Guided Snorkel Day events into new areas in Auckland such as Matheson’s Bay and Long Bay Marine Reserve and included supporting nine community engagement events in the Hauraki Gulf region. The snorkel days are a free, fun and safe summer community event. They are a great way for community members of all ages to experience and enjoy their local marine reserve or marine environment while raising awareness about marine conservation. Delivery of these events are not limited to marine reserve locations, we are really keen just to get more people in the water!
