Excellent opportunities to support marine debris initiatives and programs that help to protect our waterways and oceans.

For almost 20 years, the Tangaroa Blue Foundation has been working to look after our oceans. Today we have operations across the country with our staff and volunteers running hundreds of clean-ups, educational sessions and source reduction programs.

In Maori and Polynesian mythology, Tangaroa is the god of the ocean. Tangaroa made laws to protect the ocean and its sea creatures “Tiaki mai i ahau, maku ano koe e tiaki”… If you look after me, then I will look after you…”

We are seeking Board Members to join Tangaroa Blue to continue this work by supporting and overseeing the organisation’s strategic direction and our risk and governance frameworks.
