A highlight of the Aquavan event at Queens Park last weekend for Lily Spears Harvey (9, left) and Raven Wrigley (10) was the touch-tank. Children and adults took part in experiments, listened to talks and learned about marine animals with the help of University of Otago’s Aquavan.

The event was hosted by Environment Southland, Department of Conservation and the University of Otago’s NZ Marine Studies Centre.
