Get started for Seaweek 2004!

Our oceans are the home of the mighty and mini, the weird and wonderful, the amazing and unimaginable. Seaweek 2004 is going to help to explore just some of these marine and coastal plants and animals. As well it will help you consider what else you may discover in the sea like marine debris (eg our rubbish and tourist trash) and how you can take action to minimise this unwanted sea dweller.

Visit this website leading up to Seaweek 2004 and discover more about our ocean habitats and inhabitants. Look our for information, images, issues and web links and get ready to take part in Seaweek 2004 March 7th to 14th next year.
