National Marine Week is a celebration of all things marine. Despite the name, it lasts 15 days allowing us to make the most of the tides! This year is slightly different due to the Covid-19 crisis but we still have loads of things that you can get involved in…

Our Living Seas Wales team will be super busy bringing the shore to life so keep an eye out on our social media channels where we’ll be bringing you virtual explorations of our seashores, live online events, arts, crafts and moments of mindfulness. We’ll also be showing you some top tips of how you can ‘Save the Sea from Anywhere and Everywhere’.

Remember to tell us all about your adventures on our social media channels using #NationalMarineWeek …

Try one of our awesome events!

Some of these events will take place face-to-face, in accordance with current Government guidance and ensuring social distancing is in place at all times, whereas other events will take place digitally, or will be self-led by participants. Take a look below.
