Marine weeks

This month the WildlifeTrust celebrates the UK's marine environment with a series of Marine Weeks events lasting from 5 to 20 August.

There's nothing I like more than a stroll along the coast in the sunshine. It was a bit breezy down on the waterfront earlier today though, so I might just enjoy some marine wildlife from the comfort of indoors in the Aquarium at World Museum Liverpool instead.

In their coldwater tanks you can see replications of two underwater environments from the north west - the rocky coast of the Isle of Anglesey in North Wales and the sandy shores of Dee estuary around Hilbre Island.

Outdoor types can find out more about Marine Week events on the Wildlife Trust website.
