Wellington became a WBC region in 2013. Zoe Studd and her team are delivering the programme to local schools under the umbrella of the Mountains to Sea Wellington Trust. They have been delivering WBC's sister marine programme EMR since 2010.
The 2014 MTSCT National Marine and Freshwater Wananga Conference was held in Wellington in partnership with Zoe's team.
The team hosted a regional freshwater hui in 2016. See the proceedings here..
