The NZ Marine Studies Centre is part of the Department of Marine Science at the University of Otago.

We run many different marine programmes and workshops for schools and community groups.

We produce education resources such as the NZ Rocky Shore and Sandy and Muddy Shore ID Guides, teacher guides, worksheets, and lots more. See our website for all our free downloadable resources: www.marine.ac.nz

In 2013 we introduced a nationwide citizen science project: Marine Metre Squared (Mm2) is a science project that supports and involves communities in the monitoring of their local seashore .

The project has been designed to provide meaningful, valid environmental baseline data on the state of seashores around New Zealand. It will enable us to not only take a snapshot of seashore biodiversity, but to form a baseline against which future change may be measured.

The aims of the Marine Meter Squared project are for participants to:

- learn more about the animals and plants that live between the tides around New Zealand
- collect valuable scientific information that will help build a picture of the biodiversity, distribution and abundance of seashore animals and plants in New Zealand’s marine environment
- monitor change in this habitat over time and investigate what might be causing the change
- make connections between scientists, educators, schools and community/Iwi groups who care about their local seashore environment and want to look after it.

The website has more information, links to videos, downloadable resources, survey instructions and forms, a blog for asking questions and sharing discoveries, and a place to upload data. See www.mm2.net.nz
