1 Experiencing Marine Reserves Manual Section 2 Programme Breakdown The aim of EMR is to raise awareness, understanding and involvement in marine conservation through provision of dynamic experiential environmental education opportunities. The EMR concept INFORMATION EXPERIENCE ACTION! The EMR concept is the essence of the programme. Introduction to marine biodiversity Investigation of local marine area Marine reserve experience Comparisons between local area and fully protected area Action for the marine environment Learning Outcomes: Give at least 3 examples of New Zealand marine biodiversity and explain what a marine reserve is Explain and use snorkel equipment Describe their local marine area and what lives in it Identify and classify some of the marine creatures that they see Make comparisons between the marine reserve and their local marine area Base their opinions about the value of marine reserves on their personal experiences and action what they have learnt in their community Main Curriculum Links: Science Living World, Ecology and Evolution Social Science Health & PE What we do (for free)*: Explain how the learning outcomes will be achieved Provide marine education resources Deliver a marine biodiversity and conservation presentation to the class Work in partnership with you to coordinate and organise field trips Provide safety management and briefings/leadership on field trips Provide snorkeling equipment and instruction for water activities Provide RAMS forms for snorkeling water activities Provide emergency procedures template for water activity *subject to funding availability 6

2 What you do: Explain how the intended learning outcomes are based on the achievement objectives in the relevant curriculum areas Provide adequate parental/community supervision for field activities (EMR recommends 1:2 ratio, and can help identify community support for supervision on request) Provide student participation consents, swimming ability, medical conditions and permission for EMR use of student images/footage Provide appropriate support for students with special needs Review the snorkeling risk management template provided and seek approval from Board of Trustees Risk management planning for all activities other than snorkeling Provide first aid kit Cover costs associated with transport, food, accommodation and optional glass bottom boat ride. EMR Northland requires $1 per student per field trip. 7

3 The Action The action component of the EMR programme is an essential factor in the students learning process and one which helps us to assess the effectiveness of the programme at meeting the projected learning and conservation outcomes. By encouraging students to undertake action, that is based on their own experience, EMR aims to empower students and encourage support for marine conservation. To be eligible for the Northland Poor Knights competition, students must be involved in a group activity/action and an individual action. Some examples are listed below. Younger students may need more guidance when deciding on actions. However, students are encouraged to come up with their own action, based on their own experience what do they see as something which they could do to help out the marine environment... can they put their idea into action? Group Action examples and ideas: The EMR programme and follow up action projects stretch far and wide and cover a variety on conservation and curriculum areas. Onerahi Primary school made these bill boards to show their support for their local marine reserve, they displayed these outside their school and on the road on the way to the marine reserve. Whangarei Intermediate got excited about a variety of topics and wrote letters to the editor on issues such as marine pollution, bottom trawling, critically endangered Maui s dolphins and marine reserves. One student made a t-shirt to campaign against the damaging techniques bottom trawling. Waiheke and Great Barrier Island schools have started regularly surveying shellfish numbers and sizes on their local beaches, supported by the Department of Conservation. Gathering real, relevant data to assess the health of our marine environment has proven to be a practical and fun way for students to further develop their knowledge and understanding. Each site has been surveyed and transect lines have been mapped using aerial photos and GPS technology to ensure the same sites are sampled each year. Follow up classroom work has often been based around statistics, with teachers appreciating the ability to use real data that students have collected to create graphs and tables. 8

4 Kamo Intermediate School made language a follow up focus and wrote letters to their district council campaigning for toilets and changing facilities at the car park above the newly established Whangarei Harbour Marine Reserve, as they did not think it was good for them or the environment to do any business in the bushes! Opua School used music, drama and technology to perform their marine reserve skit & waiata to the Minister of Conservation and other dignitaries at the opening of the Whangarei Harbour marine reserve, as well as in front of their parents on a public community evening. Art in the form of dioramas, 3D, posters, display boards and murals are a major part of EMR follow up for most schools. Russell Primary produced some amazing work including surveys of marine reserve opinions of their fellow school mates, with 3D artwork and cool poems. Their work was on display at the local information center, so it could be seen by a wider audience. Some students and classes have also made video, Te Huruhi Primary on Waiheke showed their video on the Ferry between Auckland and Waiheke. Whangarei Heads School held a marine conservation information evening. Ahipara School held a marine display in their classroom during the annual school gala day. Kamo Intermediate students made individual submissions for a local marine reserve application. Orakei School set up a display and presented their powerpoint at the local shopping mall. Orakei Schools work was published in the Auckland Regional Council s Treasures handed on Taonga tuku iho journal in Ngaiotonga Valley School had a marine expo day at their end of year prize giving they converted their classroom into an underwater world. 9

5 Some schools get involved in our EMR Drains to Harbour campaign (Whangarei District) which involves stenciling stormwater drains as an action follow-up. Individual projects & action examples/ideas: Diorama Displays Design a t-shirt Design a radio ad Write a letter to a local politician about your experience Make a marine biodiversity treasure box and display it in your school 10

6 Action Case study Dargaville Intermediate School Summary of action initiatives resulting from Dargaville Intermediate's (Year 7 & 8) whole school (170 students) participation in the EMR programme Term 1, EMR Coordinator: Samara Nicholas. Sponsored by the Department of Conservation.

8 Responsibility Agreement The Experiencing Marine Reserves (EMR) programme empowers schools and communities by providing hands-on experience in the ocean. The programme involves investigating marine biodiversity within local marine environments before venturing to a fully-protected marine reserve. After this experience, students are able to compare unprotected and protected areas and are encouraged to put their knowledge into action within the community. This is an agreement between: Experiencing Address: Marine Reserves (EMR) Phone: & Mountains To Sea Mobile: Conservation Trust And: Address: Phone: (School) Please tick to acknowledge the following: EMR responsibilities provide the school with the following: EMR will take all practicable steps to ensure the health and safety of the school students and staff while participating in the EMR programme.1 Explanation of how the expected learning outcomes of the activity/ies will be met Marine education resources Marine biodiversity and conservation presentation in classroom Work in partnership with teacher in charge to coordinate and organize field trips Volunteers with relevant qualifications/experience (if applicable) Snorkel equipment and instruction for water activities Safety equipment and associated briefings and in field leadership 1 Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992, sections 1.1, 1.2.1, and

Follow-up the in-water experiences with an ACTION activity. The students are encouraged to put their knowledge into action within the community, such as investigating where a marine reserve would go, sharing findings with the local community, running a public survey or making an official submission about marine conservation. Over the years students have been involved in a range of action projects, from writing letters to their local authorities to letters to Members of Parliament, and presentations in front of assembly to presentations at public events. Refer to the programme as Experiencing Marine Reserves or EMR wherever possible. Recognition that risk management, other than that associated with snorkeling, remains the official responsibility of the school. 14

10 Indemnify the EMR leader for any claims, costs, damage and expenses that may result from the failure of the school to fulfil its risk management obligations. EMR guarantees that the instructors/volunteers it provides for the programme will not have criminal records for violent or sexual offences, and that EMR will disclose any criminal record that may be relevant to the care of students and/or a specific activity. EMR agrees to police vetting if requested. The school and EMR reserve the right to withdraw any or all participants from the programme if safety is compromised.
