About Us

The Marine Life Database has been developed by the New Zealand Marine Studies Centre, Department of Marine Science, University of Otago.

The University of Otago's New Zealand Marine Studies Centre provides expert knowledge and education about New Zealand's marine environment. The educational programmes involve students in the excitement of scientific discovery, develop knowledge and skills and encourage individuals to take responsibility and action for the future of our ocean resource. Contact the NZ Marine Studies Centre for further information about the range of educational programmes and resources available for schools and interest groups (email us at marine-studies@otago.ac.nz or see our website: www.marine.ac.nz).
