About Te Kawa O Tangaroa

Te Kawa O Tangaroa is an ocean-centred learning programme from the Marine Stewardship Council focussed on solutions to overfishing and how we can ensure oceans teeming with life.

The resource is aligned to the New Zealand National Curriculum and Te Marautanga o Aotearoa (Maori Curriculum) and designed for learners in Years 7-10 of the New Zealand education system.

Our oceans are under immense pressure from pollution, climate change and overfishing. As we pass the baton to the next generation, education is key to generating greater understanding, urgency and action to protect our big blue planet. 

If you'd like to get in touch to find out more about our education initiative, please email perya.short@msc.org.
