CKNZ School Programme
The Seashore & Sanctuary Excursion
Our learning adventure begins at the Dolphin Watch & Nature Tours classroom in Picton. Here our Education Officers prepare students for the day with a short introduction & an educational presentation.
We then board the boat and head out to Kaipupu Point Sanctuary where we disembark and explore the fascinating flora and fauna of the area. Education Officers will ensure and assist students to complete a variety ofconservation based, fun learning activities addressing the important principles that Kaipupu Point Sanctuary is established upon. Its then down to the seashore where we complete a variety of hands on discovery activities and get up close and personal with the marine invertebrates and other sea creatures that call the intertidal zone home.
After a fun filled learning excursion we then head for home discussing what we have learnt and encouraging students to pursue their own conservation projects and initiatives in the future.
