Our mission

To foster knowledge and conservation of the oceanic marine environment through research, education and awareness.

False killer whales

The false killer whale remains one of the lesser known cetaceans and fostering knowledge and awareness of this charismatic species remains at the heart of our work. You can see some of our work on New Zealand’s false killer whales documented in the BBC’s Blue Planet 2 series.

Manawanui

Manawanui, a 72ft ocean going sailing yacht and our team of highly skilled professionals enable us to facilitate effective long-term research projects on little known species and in poorly studied areas

manawanui ocean research collective

The Far Out Ocean Research Collective provides a platform for open ocean research and marine conservation. By combining science with technology, media, culture and community, we provide a holistic approach to oceanographic studies. Our key assets are the SV Manawanui, a 72ft ocean going sailing yacht and our team of highly skilled professionals. These enable us to facilitate effective long-term research projects on little known species and in poorly studied areas.

Our objectives are to:

  • Conduct and support scientific research and knowledge of New Zealand’s oceanic ecosystems. 
  • Foster and advance strategies to effectively communicate research findings and implications not only to the scientific community and relevant management bodies but also the general public.
  • Promote opportunities for professionals to engage with schools and communities to advance marine environmental education
  • Advance research methodologies and technologies to increase effectiveness and reduce adverse research impacts.
  • Provide scientific and logistical assistance to relevant groups and institutions for the purpose of furthering the aims of the trust
  • Promote and respect the cultural values of kaitiakitanga of the oceanic environment of tangata whenua.
