Join us during Seaweek 2020 to celebrate our connection with the sea and investigate the health of our marine environment. Your students will explore the many uses of marine areas and how we can better manage the human impacts on these valuable ecosystems. Students will identify different species living in Ōhiwa Harbour and explore the relationship between sea stars and mussels. They will touch a sea star, describe its physical characteristics and investigate its adaptations. Students will also take a closer look at mussels to discover what role they play in this ecosystem and how people are changing this environment.
