Local Marine Science opportunity for Te Ātiawa students from 14 to 26 March 2020

Marlborough Sounds’ research
 
Conrad (Professor Pilditch) has research plans that will provide for several (2-3) young Maori students to be ‘out in the field with us’ to share in data collection (March 7-16). Ideally, these young people would be students (university/high school) with an interest in the marine environment and wanting long term to be future environmental leaders. We would hope (especially if their time was being paid for - see below) that these students would prepare a short report on their experiences and being willing to share it with their iwi. If there was interest, we could look into developing more science involvement through participating in longer-term research programs.
 
After discussing how flexible these arrangements might be, Conrad has said:  “For the time we are here, we can be flexible but ideally we would like interested Te Ātiawa students to join us in middle of your research for a couple of days when the most is happening between March 19-22 but a day, a half-day, or some hours of involvement can be accommodated.”

We have applied for funding to facilitate iwi participation in this research that will cover costs of getting to and from the field sites, accommodation and food as well as a small koha for incidentals.
