On 27 May the Institute held a structured discussion evening to explore the future of ocean management in New Zealand. Over 60 attendees with a broad range of expertise heard our three speakers share their ideas and aspirations for New Zealand’s marine environment. Each speaker gave a 10-minute presentation, which was followed by a wide-ranging general discussion with participants from the audience.

Our second speaker was Ann McCrone, whose video is featured below. Ann works as the Marine Advocate for the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) New Zealand, and provided a very interesting commentary on the development of our existing ocean management framework.
