WWF Release Colmar Brunton Research on Marine Conservation

Posted 8 years, 2 months ago by Vince Kerr    2 comments

WWF commissioned Colmar Brunton to find out what New Zealanders today think about their oceans and marine protection.

The national opinion research, published in May 2011, asked New Zealanders a number of questions to assess the nation's views on their seas.  The key findings include:

  • More than nine in ten New Zealanders want to see more of their oceans protected in marine reserves 
  • On average New Zealanders estimate 31% of their oceans are currently protected in marine reserves 
  • On average New Zealanders think 36% of their oceans should be protected in marine reserves


Here two links to the just released WWF Colmar Brunton report on marine conservation in NZ. Vital reading on 'where we are in NZ'.

Also this interview was on breakfast TV this morning: http://tvnz.co.nz/breakfast-news/research-marine-reserves-3-48-video-4188872
A must read for anyone interested in the future of the Ocean.
