Sea-Changers are funding COAST to deliver the the South Arran Marine Protected Area travelling exhibition. This project aims to increase public awareness of one of the first Scottish Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) to be legally enforced. COAST aim to do this by developing a pop up marine exhibition (interpretation banners, leaflets and educational materials) to inform and raise awareness about the species and habitats the MPA protects but also about the ecosystem services it provides us with. COAST will be touring around Arran to encourage islanders and visitors to learn about how they are connected with the sea. They will increase local understanding of why marine protected areas are needed and how any member of the community can become more involved in marine conservation.
