Why are our seas important to us?

Whilst we can often see marine mammals charismatically surfacing and seabirds arriving to lay their eggs the swirling currents beneath the waves allow for a colourful array of weird and wonderful wildlife.

However, our seas are in trouble! There is a worrying decline in many coastal and marine habitats and species and the sea is perceived by many as a dark and barren.

What are we doing?

Launched during Wales’ Year of the Sea we’ll be offering the opportunity for all to get involved in our project by joining in with our roadshow events, telling us your sea stories or get stuck in by becoming a Living Seas Champion.


Sea Stories

Do you have a good story to tell about wildlife around the coast of Wales? We’ll be exploring, documenting and disseminating historical records and capturing stories about marine wildlife from the people we meet.

TELL US YOUR SEA STORY (Link to Project Website)

Sea Wales Roadshow

Experience the wonders of the Welsh coast and sea with our amazing augmented reality experience, Sea Wales 7D! We’ll be taking to road with our Living Seas Live! Roadshow and bringing you lots of events and activities to get involved in.

Become a Living Seas Champion
