Make the most of the coast with The Wildlife Trusts and spot shoreline treasures and ocean giants this National Marine Week. The celebration runs from 27 July - 11 August 2019 – a fortnight to take advantage of the tides – and showcases wonderful seaside wildlife around the UK, from the tiniest crab to the wibbliest, wobbliest jellyfish.
A fabulous programme of events including rockpool rambles, egg case hunts and strandline surveys is on offer across Lancashire, while Wildlife Trusts across the country will be launching their own National Marine Week events, too. The Wildlife Trusts will also be launching a new version of their popular citizen science project, Shoresearch, and are calling on everyone to get involved in monitoring marine life on UK shores. The data collected through Shoresearch will help experts monitor our fragile sea life and better understand the effects of pollution, climate change and invasive alien species.
