Interested in marine life? Want to know more about local coastal research? Have a hankering to hold a starfish? Join us!

The Victoria University of Wellington Coastal Ecology Lab (VUCEL) is holding its annual Open Day on Saturday 9 March from 10 am to 3 pm.

Join the VUCEL team of knowledgeable researchers to learn about the marine biology research that happens right here around Wellington. Visitors can touch tanks of marine creatures, see research equipment in action, ask our researchers anything they want to know, and learn about marine biology research from the interactive displays. This annual event is the only time VUCEL is open to the public, all year.

This event is free and is suitable for all ages.
