A free presentation by Chris Paulin: “Kapiti Marine Reserve: Past, present and future”

Chris has a wealth of knowledge and experience with natural history and ethnological museum collections including 37 years as a marine biology curator at the National Museum of New Zealand. His work has been published in over 60 scientific papers and has included descriptions of 17 species of fish new to science.

The presentation will include information about the history of the reserve, the value of the unique marine life that lives within the Kapiti marine reserve and the future possibilities for this unique marine protected area. This is a great opportunity for members of the public to find out more about the reserve and the incredible abundance and diversity of life that the local marine environment supports.

This presentation is one in a series of marine science summer lectures organised by the Guardians of Kapiti Marine Reserve. Paraparaumu library is hosting this presentation as part of the library’s Waitangi lecture series.
