About the event

At least 21 species of skate, ray and shark are found in UK waters and as some species will lay eggs all year-round, it's time to go on an egg hunt!

We want to find out what species might have been laying their eggs in the Irish Sea, so come along and collect some eggcases to help The Shark Trust with important marine conservation.
