RUBBISH - if you see it pick it up!

What we do or don't do affects our oceans and not just during Seaweek.
Please watch this excellent clip by Josie Jones with a plea to pick up rubbish wherever we see it.

NATIONAL SEAWEEK 2016

Originally hosted by the Marine Education Society of Australasia (MESA), National Seaweek is an annual event to "Celebrate the Sea". With the passing of MESA the Australian Association of Environmental Educators (AAEE) has picked up the banner and is offering people the opportunity to run or participate in a variety of activities around the country. 

Many Australian marine educators, including the author of this article, assisted in developing the 7 Principles of Ocean Literacy [here]


Ocean Literacy means understanding the ocean’s influence on you and your influence on the ocean. The 7 principles of Ocean Literacy are ideas scientists and educators agree everyone should understand about the ocean.  

The AAEE Marine Group have chosen to theme the next 7 years of Seaweek to follow those principles.  

This year's theme is OL Principle One: 


THE EARTH HAS ONE BIG OCEAN WITH MANY FEATURES.
