How do I Survey my Marine Metre Squared


Marine Metre Squared is an easy way for anyone to survey the plants and animals living on their local intertidal seashore.

Monitor a 1m x 1m square patch of your local rocky shore once every season by recording the numbers of animals and plants that live inside the square area.

Take part in special scientific studies and fun educational challenges such as hunting for pest species, looking for evidence of animals breeding and measuring seaweed growth.

Help others identify their new finds with the online forum. Submit your own questions and encourage others around NZ to take part.

Perfect for families looking for holiday activities and schools and community groups looking for ways to engage with and improve their local environment.
