Just over 2 years ago, the OSOF initiative started as a social media campaign to share information about our coastal and marine environment. Just over 2 years on, OSOF continues to steadily gain momentum while building a solid support base on social media. However, something has always been missing…an independent web presence outside of social media websites.
On July 5th and 6th, about 20 young water lovers took part in OSOF's pilot event, The Science of Swimming programme, during the 2014 New Zealand International Science Festival . OSOF's science communicator, Amadeo, took the group on a 1 hour journey of discovery under the water.
Seaweek 2015 will take place from Saturday 28 February to Sunday 8 March 2015. The theme is “Look beneath the surface – Papatai ō roto – Papatai ō raro". Seaweek events are planned throughout New Zealand, and OSOF will be running some events in Auckland & Dunedin.
