Mountains To Sea Wellington

Mountains to Sea Wellington delivers inspiring freshwater and marine education programmes for schools and communities across the greater Wellington region. We connect people to nature, building understanding through science and exploration, and fostering kaitiakitanga (guardianship) for the environment.

The national Mountains to Sea Conservation Trust is the overarching Trust for all of our education programmes in Wellington: Experiencing Marine Reserves, Whitebait Connection and Healthy Harbours.
