Our marine wildlife is amazing and we want to tell everyone!

You could be taking a group out on a seashore safari and giving some children their very first experience of the sea, introducing them to the underwater treasure trove of nature and igniting their imagination with the fabulous creatures you find there. Or you could be swaying on the waves in one of Yorkshires finest fishing cobbles pointing out to visitors the breath-taking views of Flamborough Cliffs whilst watching sea birds like puffin, gannets and razor bills descend from the sky.
