Clearing Away the Ghosts Thursday, 5th August 2021 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM
National Marine Week Webinar
Sussex Wildlife Trust's Wild Coast Sussex project is working with Ghost Fishing UK to remove nets, fishing gear and other marine debris that pose a threat to marine life off the Sussex Coast.
Join Nikki Hills (Sussex Wildlife Trust's Wild Coast Sussex project) and Christine Grosart (Ghost Fishing UK) to dive into the problem of 'Ghost Gear' and find out what we’re doing to remove this from the marine environment in Sussex, including footage from their recent dives on two wrecks off Brighton.
Ghost Fishing UK is a unique charity, made up of volunteer scuba divers who all use their free time to use their diving skills, cleaning up our oceans of lost fishing gear.
The talk will be followed by a Q&A session.
This event is free but donations to assist the work of Sussex Wildlife Trust would be appreciated. There will be an opportunity to donate at the end of the talk.
After registering you'll receive a confirmation email which will contain the link required to attend the webinar. This link will also be contained in two reminder emails you'll receive one day and one hour before the start of the presentation.
