National Marine Week
This is your chance to explore the seashore, discover dunes and wallow with whelks. Both coastal and inland Wildlife Trusts offer a wide range of events that uncover the magic of the marine world. This year’s National Marine Week is asking people to explore their relationship with the sea. Many aspects of our everyday lives have a negative effect on our seas so NMW is asking everyone to take action to help marine wildlife.
