Dive into National Marine Week 2020 - 25 July to 9 August 2020

National Marine Week is The Wildlife Trusts’ nationwide celebration of all things marine. Despite the name, it lasts 15 fun-filled days to allow for the variation in tide times around the country.

The theme this year is Explore the Shore!

Normally we would have lots of great events for you to attend but we are of course having to do things a bit differently this year. We are instead encouraging everyone to safely get down to the coast and explore our beaches and rock pools. Sussex has got some fantastic marine wildlife for you to discover.

You can even report your findings to the Wildlife Trusts using this online form.

We’ll be sharing lots of different things to do throughout the 15 days, and don’t forget to share your Marine Week activities with us on social media by using the hashtag #NationalMarineWeek
