Webinar: Which ecosystem model works best for what you need?

Start date

In this webinar, NIWA researchers Vidette McGregor and Samik Datta will discuss three ecosystem models of varying complexity. They will compare the model dynamics to each other and to current knowledge, and discuss appropriate use of each model.
 

Ngā mihi maioha, Sir Rob

Te tai ra, Te tai ra
Te tai ra e pari ana ki hea
E pari ana  ki te kauheke tangata
Ka rongo te ao
Kua rongo te po

E te rangatira

Kua riro atu koe ki te kapunipunitanga o te tangata. Ko te reo o te taiao tera e rangona atu i te mūnga o tōu na reo.

Ka waiho ma maumahara koe e mahara ki ou mahi rangatira i te wa o te ora. No reira, Haere atu ra, haere atu ra, okioki mai.

Tracking the transport of ocean trash

A web-based interactive tool tracks how floating plastic waste moves around New Zealand's coastline. Initially designed as an educational tool for schools, the Ocean Plastic Simulator also has potential for environmental and biosecurity monitoring, and aquaculture.

LEARNZ: Explore marine science and kaitiakitanga

Once again, school children across the country can virtually travel with LEARNZ to experience marine science fieldwork with Sustainable Seas researchers. This year they will discover what's threatening a taonga species in Ōhiwa Harbour, and how science and mātauranga Māori are being combined by local kaitiaki to understand – and address – the problem.

Job opportunity: Synthesis Scientist

We're looking for a dynamic researcher who is keen to help turn research into action. You'll be able to transcend disciplines, and capable of weaving together multiple strands of knowledge generated from across the Sustainable Seas Challenge into user-focused outputs that enable marine managers to implement ecosystem-based management.

 

Take our 2 min social media survey

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?

Examples of EBM in Aotearoa

A new map shows the locations of initiatives across Aotearoa New Zealand that incorporate three or more of the seven EBM principles we have developed with Māori and stakeholders.

Symposium gives voice to the ocean

In early October Te Paepae o Tangaora Oceans Symposium was held in Te Tairāwhiti (Gisborne). The Ocean Speaks meeting was a chance to kōrero about the challenges facing Te Moananui a Kiwa – the Pacific Ocean.
