New marine discoveries at the Kermadec Islands
Dr Libby Liggins (Massey University) and Dr.Tom Trnski (Auckland Museum)
27 June 2017
Small, remote islands such as New Zealand’s Kermadec Islands have long been revered as natural laboratories. Here we can examine the processes that generate and maintain biodiversity.
Typically, the biodiversity of the marine environments surrounding islands is less-studied. However, our recent expeditions to these Islands have exponentially increased our knowledge of the marine biodiversity. This highlights the scientific and conservation importance of this region.
Dr Liggins and Dr Trnski have dived and explored the Kermadec islands and will share some, until now, secrets of the intriguing marine biodiversity from this special place. They will talk about their expeditions and highlight recent discoveries.
