Promote ocean literacy during Sea Week and inspire students to learn about ocean risks and their solutions.  Check back here later this year to find out about events and activities that we will be conducting to celebrate SeaWeek 2024.

About Sea Week

Join us for Sea Week (2nd to 10th March 2024) as we promote ocean literacy and celebrate connecting with our seas.

Our ocean needs protection.

  • Our ocean covers 70% of the planet and supports life as we know it
  • Every second breath we take comes from the ocean
  • Our ocean feeds billions of people
  • Our ocean hosts 80% of the world’s biodiversity.

However, the health of our seas is threatened by pollution such as abandoned fishing nets, overfishing, and the effects of climate change.

Sea Week is a great opportunity to improve our collective understanding of the ocean's influence on us and our influence on the ocean.
