WWF commissioned Colmar Brunton to find out what New Zealanders today think about their oceans and marine protection.

The national opinion research, published in May 2011, asked New Zealanders a number of questions to assess the nation's views on their seas.  The key findings include:

  • More than nine in ten New Zealanders want to see more of their oceans protected in marine reserves 
  • On average New Zealanders estimate 31% of their oceans are currently protected in marine reserves 
  • On average New Zealanders think 36% of their oceans should be protected in marine reserves
