Seaweek Kaupapa Moana 2019 “Tiakina o Tatou Moana – Care for our Seas” 2 – 10 March 2019

About Seaweek – Kaupapa Moana

Seaweek is an annual marine education, action and awareness event coordinated by the New Zealand Association for Environmental Education (NZAEE).

New Zealand’s “seascape” is particularly rich and complex due to its range and scope (sub-tropic to sub-Antarctic) and its geographic position across active plates, major water masses and current systems. Our marine area is over 15 times larger than our land area and our exclusive economic zone is the fourth largest in the world. This amazing environment is home to more than 15,000 known species, many of which are not found anywhere else in the world. Seaweek has a demonstrated role to facilitate learning from and celebrating the spectacular sea that surrounds us, and aims to strengthen our sense of connection with and responsibility towards the marine environment.
