You can help us reach our goal of raising $70,000, 1$ for each metre of 70km featured coastline of Wellington

Documenting underwater habitats and supporting marine restoration projects like regrowing seaweed, and creating immersive and interactive video experiences requires specialised equipment and resources. You can help us make a difference by supporting our vital work to ensure the on-going biodiversity of the Wellington marine environment is documented, enhanced and accessible to everyone back at shore.
