A Brief History of Seaweek
Between 1988 and 2014 Seaweek was the Marine Education Society of Australasia's (MESA) major national public awareness campaign. It was conducted annually (usually in March) to focus community awareness, provide information and encourage an appreciation of the sea.
Each year a different Seaweek theme was chosen and a national coordinator appointed. This provided a focus for student and the community activities, the publication of educational materials and media promotions about the marine and coastal environments. Over these 27 years MESA also had a team of dedicated individuals and groups from around Australia who promote marine awareness and provide educational events in their region to make Seaweek a continuing success.
