Our expedition team is back from the Three Kings Islands and ready to answer your questions about what they found and to show you some of the specimens they collected to help build their understanding of the marine environment.
The blog has been a fantastic chance to follow their discoveries but now you can meet them face to face and talk to them about their preliminary findings about marine life in the Three Kings.
In the few days since the team got back on dry land they’ve already identified that one of the fish they found is likely to be a new species. So who knows what tomorrow will bring.
You can meet four of the team – including University of Queensland PhD student Libby Liggins and one of the expedition’s photographers Richard Robinson - tomorrow at 11am at the Auckland Museum. There are some more details of the session below and we’ve also got some more underwater footage from the expedition for anyone already suffering blog withdrawals!
