Events for alumni

Registration is essential

Level 4
50 Kitchener Street

As the oceans warm, what’s happening to the marine species beneath the waves?

Join us at an upcoming alumni lecture at Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington's Auckland premises on the evening of Wednesday 30 June.

Hear about some of our latest research from award-winning marine biologist Dr Christopher Cornwall.

Fresh from his Prime Minister’s MacDiarmid Emerging Scientist Prize, he’ll share what we’re learning about how the world’s coral reefs, marine algae and the species that depend on them will respond to ocean acidification.

There’s good news, thanks to the adapabilty of organisims but there are still challenges ahead. Whether you have a background in the sciences or just enjoy catching up on the latest research, hear the full story during this deep dive into the big blue sea.

There’ll also be the opportunity to catch up with fellow graduates during the event over light refreshments.

There is no charge for this event, but places are limited.
