IBMEC CLOSED UNTIL COVID -19 ALERT LEVEL 1

Dear Visitors and Volunteers,
 
We need to let you know that we’ll not be holding our weekly Open Sunday at the Bait House Aquarium until we’re confident that you and
your family are safe from the Covid-19 virus.  
 
We’ll keep you informed of any changes in the situation through our Island Bay Marine Education Centre Facebook Page: 
and our website: www.octopus.org.nz.
 
We really appreciate your support you’ve given us over the past year and hope to be able to open up again as soon as possible. 
 
We hope you’re all keeping safe and healthy during this challenging time. 
 
STAY SAFE
