Education Programs

One of our goals is to raise marine eco-awareness, in the hopes to contribute to a more sustainable future. We love passing our commitment to sustainability and marine conservation on to the next generation.

We have developed the Carino Marine Explorers Education Program so that we may influence the next generation of guardians to, look after our local Bay of Islands environment.

Carino Marine Education

Our Carino Marine education activities aim to inspire children and bring marine wildlife to life, through outdoor and hands-on learning, in our local Bay of Islands environment.

We have developed several education programs:

  1. Marine Explorer – Discovery activity is for kids to consider the marine environment around them and how it is all related. To increase kids’ interest in natural science by using our amazing dolphins and wildlife and to inspire kids to look at the ocean with new eyes.
  2. Marine Explorers – Marine Kaitiaki is for children to learn about at risk and declining local species, to understand how human activities are affecting them and what we can do to reduce our impact.
  3. Introduction to Marine Eco Tourism education program is a hands on approach to marine eco tourism.

If you are interested in your students joining our floating classroom or would like the team to visit your school, please get in touch. POA
