On Monday, 12 young New Zealanders set off on a 13-day voyage to the Auckland Islands, where they will help to plan the building of a world-leading research station.

They will be joined on the Young Blake Expedition by a crew of leading New Zealand marine scientists, representatives from the Department of Conservation, NZ Navy, NIWA and the Sir Peter Blake Trust.

The Young Blake Expedition programme aims to follow in the footsteps of Sir Peter Blake and to mobilise and inspire the next generation of kiwi leaders, adventurers and marine environmentalists.

Join us as we follow the expedition.
