Ocean Superheroes

While we can't visit schools in person, we're offering our free Ocean Superheroes live lesson to schools via Teams or Zoom.

The session is aimed at students aged 7-11 and explores vital UK marine habitats like seagrass, maerl and kelp. We'll be looking at common species, human impacts on our seas and why underwater habitats really are superheroes. Follow-up activities are provided.

Go Plastic Free

This session explores the issue of plastics, including the effects on our environment and possible ways we can all help to reduce our footprint.

Stop the Plastic Tide

Join our Scotland Conservation Officer, Catherine Gemmell, on her beach clean to learn about marine litter, hear how she became an 'Ocean Optimist' and what we can all do to help save the sea no matter where we live. Best suited to ages 7-11.

Ocean Acidification

Tara and Natalie from Dynamic Earth talk about ocean acidification in this short video. They look at how climate change affects the creatures that live in our ocean and demonstrate ocean acidification with a simple experiment that can be done at home.
