Intermediate schools that have taken part in the BLAKE NZ-VR programme

BLAKE Explorers

After two successful pilots in 2020 and carrying over into 2021, we are excited for the return of our newest programme: BLAKE Explorers. This is a three-day experience for intermediate-aged students who have taken part in our BLAKE NZ-VR programme.

BLAKE Explorers give these students the opportunity to explore our marine environment through activities such as snorkelling, surfing, nature trails, and other outdoor activities.

Through these activities we hope to spark an interest for the students and inspire them to take action for the environment.

We want to provide this opportunity for students that would not otherwise get the opportunity, and school groups that have taken part in our NZ-VR programme will be eligible to be selected for BLAKE Explorers.
