Over the holidays ...perhaps while at the beach...think about who you would like to nominate as Seaweek's Ocean Champion for 2017. Sponsored by the New Zealand Coastal Society the winning Ocean Champion will win a prize equivalent to $500. Nominations close 27 January 2017.
Anyone can be an Ocean Champion if they help to look after our oceans. A champion might be an individual or a group.
Nominations are being taken via the Seaweek website. Voting on the nominees will take place from 1-24 February.
All nominees will be featured on the website and the winner will be announced during Seaweek - Saturday 25 February to Sunday 5 March 2017.
