Welcome to the very first Mm2 e-newsletter. You have received this because you have registered for the Mm2 project at www.mm2.net.nz. We will be sending newsletters from time to time to let you know about new developments and resources, such as the new Mudflat Mysteries educational activity book - see below.
There are events happening all over the country this week to celebrate NZEAA Seaweek. See www.seaweek.org.nz
What better way than to return to your local shore and carry out another Mm2 shore survey? You can upload your results to the website and compare what you find this time with what you discovered previously, or with others in the same or different regions.
NEW Mudflat Mysteries Educational Activity Book
The NZ Marine Studies Centre has released a new educational activity book that features the animals and plants found between the tides on NZ's muddy shores.
The illustrations show where the animals live and what signs can be seen on the shore to indicate what lives beneath the surface.
The New Zealand Marine Studies Centre produces a range of resources to help you identify the animals and plants found between the tides on New Zealand's shores. Check out the resources on the www.mm2.net.nz website.
