The Mountains to Sea Conservation Trust is a charitable umbrella and support organisation for the Experiencing Marine Reserves (EMR) marine education and Whitebait Connection (WBC) freshwater education programmes. Our work involves providing dynamic experiential education programmes that engage schools and communities in conservation and the pursuit of sustainability.
EMR and WBC coordinators offer guidance, direction and coordination of classroom exercises and field trips to the ocean and freshwater environments. We also provide equipment, instruction, resources and snorkel risk management. Our organisation also runs a number of community engagement events such as planting days in the winter and snorkeling days in the summer!
