The Geoscience Society of New Zealand welcomes organisations with an interest in the geosciences, including Aotearoa New Zealand's unique geological landscapes, to become members.
As well as being publicly affiliated with New Zealand's foremost association for geoscientists, you'll have access to the knowledge and expertise of our members.
Student Group Membership
The GSNZ is keen to support and encourage students to pursue a career in the geosciences.
To help with this we are pleased to offer membership of the GSNZ to New Zealand based student groups at the discounted rate of $40 (the full rate for non-student organisations is $100).
Student Group Grants
Student groups (who are GSNZ members) may request funding from GSNZ on a case-by-case basis. This is intended to support student geological activities that involve or promote geoscience in NZ.

Featured member: Waitaki Whitestone Aspiring Global Geopark
"The Geopark became organisational members of the Geoscience Society of New Zealand because we recognise the huge expanse of scientific knowledge and ongoing research that members are leading."
Waitaki Whitestone Aspiring Global Geopark
27 Thames Street, Oamaru
The Waitaki Whitestone aspiring Global Geopark based in the Waitaki District tells the story of our land and our whenua. It inspires our people and visitors to learn, discover and be connected to our living planet and cultural histories, so together we can care for and contribute to thriving communities.
There are many sites within the Geopark that are of recognised geological significance. These sites reveal glimpses of time into the formation of Zealandia, and it is through these sites we tell the story of the land.
The Geopark became organisational members of the Geoscience Society of New Zealand because we recognise the huge expanse of scientific knowledge and ongoing research that members are leading, and involved in, and we want to engage with these experts to make sure the stories we are telling continue to be accurate and up to date!
