National Marine Week

25th July - 9th August 2015

The UK's marine environment is home to some of our most fascinating wildlife, such as basking sharks, grey seals, puffins and dolphins.

Each year The Wildlife Trusts celebrate the UK's amazing sea animals and plants during National Marine Week and this year it's the shore crab! 

This is your chance to explore the seashore, discover dunes and wallow with whelks - however you don't have to wait for National Marine Week to get out there!

Both coastal and inland Wildlife Trusts offer a wide range of events that uncover the magic of the marine world. Contact your local Wildlife Trust, or visit our events pages, for activities and events in your area!
