Small, remote islands such as Rangitahua the Kermadec Islands have long been revered as natural laboratories. Here we can examine the processes that generate and maintain biodiversity.

Typically, the biodiversity of the marine environments surrounding islands is less-studied. However, our recent expeditions to these Islands have exponentially increased our knowledge of the marine biodiversity.

This highlights the scientific and conservation importance of this region. Auckland Museum’s Head of Natural Sciences Dr. Tom Trnski and Massey University’s Dr. Libby Liggins have dived and explored the Kermadec islands and will share some, until now, secrets of the intriguing marine biodiversity from this special place. They will talk about their expeditions and highlight recent discoveries.

Entry is free but registrations are essential. Please visit Massey University’s website to book your place now.
