Te Puke High School students discover marine study paths in the Bay

Submitted by on March 8, 2013 – 12:09 pm

As part of Sustainable Backyards month and Sea Week an enthusiastic group of Te Puke High School students were treated to a day out on Butler’s Swim with Dolphin’s boat to experience the local marine life. The trip was organised by Envirohub BOP (previously Tauranga Environment Centre Charitable Trust) with support from Western Bay of Plenty Council, to help highlight the marine and environmental study paths on offer in the Bay of Plenty. The students got to sail out to Karewa Island and go snorkelling with marine biologists Keith Gregor from Bay of Plenty Polytechnic and Phil Ross from Waikato University, who were on board to speak about their combined Marine Studies and Bachelor of Science programmes. Trip organiser Tania Gaborit says “Young kiwi’s need to get out and experience nature to encourage them to think about the future of their country”. Envirohub BOP is organising a youth forum on the 25th March from 5:30-8pm at Mount Surf Club. Students are encouraged to come along and take part in a fun interactive night with speakers from Generation Zero, 350.org and other youth led organisations. Be inspired, contribute your ideas and make your voice heard! Make your own cycle-powered smoothie, take part in competitions and win spot prizes including an O’Neill RG8 wetsuit and Butler’s Swim with Dolphin tickets! To register go to www.envirohub.org.nz.
