Join us as we celebrate our marine wildlife and explore the diversity of our seas and coasts. The festival, in partnership with the Environmental Records Information Centre (ERIC) and leading whale and dolphin conservation charity ORCA, invites you to find out more about the wildlife of our seas and have a whale of a time at our free workshops and family fun events.
Highlights of the festival include an exciting interactive exhibition of inflatable life-size marine mammals, sharks and reptiles, as well as impressive objects from the museums biology collection.
This celebration will culminate in the Big Watch Weekend – a dedicated weekend of coastal wildlife watching events.
