Visit the Seaweek website at seaweek.org.nz to nominate your ‘Ocean Champion’ and celebrate all those individuals, groups and organizations who work so hard to look after our seas and the marine life that lives in them.
Nominations will be open from Sunday 1 November 2015 until Friday 29 January 2016 and voting will take place during February 2016. Nominees will all be featured on the Seaweek website.
The winner will be announced during Seaweek 2016 and will receive a prize of $500 donated by the New Zealand Coastal Society.

The theme for this year’s Seaweek, which runs from Saturday 27 February to Sunday 6 March 2016, is “Toiora te Moana – Toiora te Tangata; Healthy Seas – Healthy People”.
