Whakamana te maunga

Whakamana te wai

He mauri o ngā tangata

Ngā mea katoa he pai

If we look after the water

from the mountains to sea,

it will look after us.

It is our life force.

SCHOOL PROGRAMMES

Mountains to Sea has been running school programmes since 2002 through our programmes Experiencing Marine Reserves (EMR) and Whitebait Connection (WBC). Students learn in the classroom, then get out into their local environment which is compared to a pristine environment. We can offer snorkel experiences as well as in stream investigations and kayaking.

The programmes are tailored to each school with a limited number of fully funded programmes available as well as user paid options.
