Exploring Our Oceans

The theme for Seaweek 2003 was Exploring Our Oceans. This theme takes us away from familiar coastal environments and exposes us to the deep blue ocean. We will delve into past, present and future exploration of the final frontier on our home planet.

Seaweek 2003 dates were March 9 to 16, 2003. Most Seaweek activities and events were held during this week. We are also aiming to link in with Ocean Care Week which is the first week of December. Seaweek activities could be run or finalised then.

The Seaweek 2003 Bunch of five (suggestions) should give you a start. You could also contact your local MESA delegate.
