The French vessel Tara is returning to New Zealand for the first time since the death of Kiwi yachtsman, environmentalist and hero, Sir Peter Blake. Tara was formerly Seamaster, Sir Peter’s yacht and has a special place in the heart of New Zealanders.
Join this Auckland Conversation about the vision for ocean leadership and learn about local and global initiatives to look after our ocean. This is a great opportunity to connect with Sir Peter Blake’s legacy and the work that is happening daily to increase environmental awareness among young people and the public.
Since 2003, Tara has travelled 300,0000 kms across the world’s oceans, undertaking research to understand the impacts of climate and ecological changes and to anticipate the future. This current voyage, Tara Pacific, has been sailing for nearly 40,000 km through the Pacific Ocean to explore coral reefs.
