Plankton Planet is bringing together experts in Māori waka and sailing tradition with international scientists from New Zealand, France, and the USA for a series of presentations and discussions with the audience.

It will be an evening of discovery combining Māori heritage, new developments in marine research, and never-before-seen images of oceanic plankton. The audience will be transported through an epic intellectual and visual voyage across our changing oceans with captivating stories from traditional waka to the innovations in modern oceanographic research into plankton ecosystems and the critical challenges facing our blue planet.

The New Zealand Maritime Museum will host the programme “An Epic Voyage through Our Changing Seas” organised by the non-profit organisation Plankton Planet. This programme is open to the public. Seating is limited so we recommend you book your place.

The Plankton Planet Arts Display will also be opening the evening of July 6. Fascinating, never-before-seen images of plankton will be on display in the Centre of Learning at the Maritime Museum. Giant prints of plankton, 3-D printed models, lenticular prints, and videos show the beauty, functionality, and wide range of microscopic life forms.

The public is invited to discover this hidden world for themselves. The display, curated by Sarah-Jane Blake, can be seen on weekends and during the school holidays from 8 – 30 July.
