In July 2000 five Australian marine educators travelled to California for the National Marine Educators Association (NMEA) conference.
The conference was held in Long Beach but we also took the chance visit marine education centres, aquariums and other attractions on the California coast.
Those travelling were Harry Breidahl (Nautilus Educational), Jane Breidahl (Woodleigh School), Anna Cooke (Gould League), Sheree Marris (Gould League) and Ian Wisken (Balnarring Primary School).
