VUCEL making a splash
In celebration of New Zealand Seaweek, the Victoria University Coastal Ecology Laboratory (VUCEL) in Island Bay opened its doors to the public on Saturday 5 March.
Victorious Autumn 2016
This year’s Seaweek theme was Toiora te Moana—Toiora te Tangata, Healthy Seas—Healthy People. Dr Jeff Shima, the VUCEL director, says the theme highlights the strong dependencies that we have on our oceans.
Visitors were able to see marine creatures up close and learn about the interesting biology of the marine animals and plants on display.
