The CARIM team is keen to work with educators, students and schools around the country and especially in the three main study site areas (Karitane (Otago), Nelson Bays, Firth of Thames/Tikapa Moana).

Some of the CARIM team held a series of workshops on ocean acidification with primary and secondary students at the INSPIRE festival in Nelson April 2016.

We're working to develop this content into open-access educational resources that will be available on this page in the future.

Please contact us if you would like us to provide outreach on ocean acidification to your school or you would like further information.



NIWA have produced an excellent poster on ocean acidification and what we are doing in our CARIM project. It is available in pdf format here.
