Marine Science @ Otago - Sir Peter Blake Ambassadors

Marine Science Students, Zac Penman and Blake Hornblow, were selected by the Sir Peter Blake Trust as NIWA Science Ambassadors and in early 2015 joined a voyage to Antarctica on the NIWA vessel, Tangaroa. 
The Blake NIWA Ambassador programme is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure to work alongside and assist world class scientists in ground breaking research for New Zealand. 

The 2015 expedition on board the NIWA research vessel Tangaroa partnered with Antarctica New Zealand and the Australian Antarctic Division to undertake a six-week research initiative in the Southern Ocean on areas of importance to humpback, blue whales and Antarctic toothfish.
