The Blue Cradle Foundation is a non-profit organization working in the fields of ocean literacy education, marine research, and digital production in Aotearoa New Zealand & the South Pacific region.
Blue Cradle has three main programmes:
- An education programme, promoting ocean literacy across schools, Universities and the broader public.
- A digital outreach programme, producing short and long form content for a wide range of audiences.
- A research programme, aiming to address complex issues of ecosystem resilience, anthropogenic pressures, and marine biodiversity characterization.
Our priority is to grow and consolidate our presence in Ōtautahi/Christchurch, through ocean literacy activities, providing opportunities for tamariki and rangatahi.
Our main role across the community is to inform & educate, bringing marine science, conservation, and blue economy opportunities and connecting with industry.
We work at the national level, and internationally across the region building significant partnerships, leading ocean literacy education, research or marine conservation projects.
