Marine Metre Squared (MM2) is an easy way to survey the intertidal community. Monitor a 1m x 1m square patch of your local rocky shore once every season by recording the animals and plants that live there.
Take fun in special scientific studies and fun educational challenges such as hunting for pest species, looking for evidence of animals breeding, and measuring seaweed growth.
Help others identify their new finds with the online forum. Submit your own questions and encourage others around New Zealand to take part.
The perfect project for families looking for holiday activities, schools and community groups looking for ways to engage with and improve their local environments.
The project website and database will be launched during Seaweek (2 - 10 March 2013).
