Seaweek activities to get people involved

A variety of activities are being held to get people involved in looking after Otago's coast during Seaweek.

Activities begin today with a display about marine species at the Meridian mall in Dunedin and continue with beach clean-ups and chances to learn more about Otago's coast.

The New Zealand Marine Studies Centre's Marine Metre Squared project will launch a new guide for the sandy and muddy shore tomorrow, to go alongside its rocky shore guide, and there will be opportunities for people to see its practical application at six places along the coast.

Information gathered helps scientists improve coastal management.

Tomorrow the Dunedin Coastal Clean-up will take place on beaches along the coast, groups such as the Kiwi Conservation Club and the Yellow-eyed Penguin Trust helping out.

Other activities include ''An Evening at Sea'' at Otago Museum and film screenings and storytelling at the Dunedin City Library.
