National Marine Week 27th July to 11th August

….or National Marine fortnight? Either way this annual marine week organised by the Wildlife Trusts is a wonderful opportunity to get out there and experience the wealth and diversity of your local marine and coastal environments. Events across the North West include shore searches, beach events days, sand sculpture, rock pooling and mud dipping, nature reserve walks (including tidal islands) and a great range of opportunities to help monitor whales and dolphins off the North West coast and contribute to Sea Watch Foundation’s National Whale and Dolphin Watch which also starts on 27th July.
