Making our research accessible is an important part of what we do; social media is one of the ways we do this. Would you rather find it on Facebook, see images on Instagram, or like our posts on LinkedIn?
We’ve developed an interactive map that shows the locations and key information of all our research projects. The aim is to help connect people with the research happening in their community.
In this webinar, Heni Unwin and Ross Vennell from the Cawthron Institute will showcase an interactive online tool they’ve developed to predict the movement of plastic waste around New Zealand’s coastline.
Julie Hall, Director: "It is deeply concerning that the state of our marine environment has not improved in the last three years. Resilient coasts and oceans are essential to New Zealanders' health and wealth, so urgent action is needed to address the decline. There is a growing need for ecosystem-based management (EBM) to holistically manage risk and sustain Aotearoa's coasts and oceans. This is even more important given the ongoing impacts of climate change."
Do you have science communication skills and at least 2 years experience? Do you care about Aotearoa's oceans and how people use/value our seas? Then we've got a job for you.
In this webinar, Cawthron researcher Ben Knight will describe a new model for forecasting bacterial contamination in Tasman and Golden Bays, and Lincoln Mackenzie will describe innovative methods for detecting harmful algal blooms (HABs).
Marine ecology, spatial planning, real-time monitoring, and aquaculture all produce data that can support kaitiaki in their work. However, finding out about and accessing these troves of science information is not always straightforward – and the format is not always readily understandable or useable.
