Despite its name, this celebration of all things marine lasts 15 fun-packed days and will fill you with a wonder and passion for the UK’s oceans.
What we’re doing for National Marine Week
We want National Marine Week to inspire people to care about and care for our seas. Estuaries, muddy shores and oceans like the Irish Sea are under huge pressure from damaging fishing activities, marine litter, climate change, invasive developments and other threats that have the potential to irreparably damage these sensitive habitats.
To help you discover the wonders of our seas and find out how you can help to protect them, we've pulled together a packed programme of exciting marine events running right across our coast. From egg case hunts at Lytham St Anne's and rockpooling at Heysham Bay, to Seawatch events at Rossall Point Observation Tower, there is something for everyone.
But our work doesn't stop after National Marine Week. We work tirelessly to develop relationships with regulators and fishermen, develop effective management plans, lobby Government, survey our shores and raise public awareness about the plight of UK seas all year-round. Can you help us continue this vital work?
