2017 - Grant Award - £500

The wonderful world of Wembury’s coast was such a success during its first year, that we are planning to offer Wembury Primary School pupils and teachers further opportunities for discovering and learning more about the coastal environment on their doorstep, building on their knowledge and enthusiasm from this summer.  This is in addition to providing snorkel safaris for the local community giving them the opportunity to learn about and be inspired by the fascinating marine world on their doorstep.

This project will be based at Wembury Marine Centre, with our experienced marine conservation staff who will be offering snorkel safaris alongside some further activities such as litter picking, mini beast exploration, and listening to the sounds of the rockpools using a portable hydrophone unit to listen to underwater sounds and noise in the rockpools.

It is vital for the future of our seas and coast that people have opportunities to learn about the wildlife in our waters, gain insights into the problems the seas are facing, and learn how everyday things they do can resolve some of  the issues the oceans are contending with.   This project aims to inspire everyone involved to protect, respect and love the sea.

 

2016 - Grant Award - £200

The wonderful world of Wembury’s coast is waiting to be explored and investigated, and that’s exactly what Wembury Primary School pupils and teachers will be doing!

This project will be based at Wembury Marine Centre, with our experienced marine conservation staff working with Wembury Primary School together with the Marine Conservation Society and the National Trust, providing the school with free activity days from mini beast exploration, a beach clean, beach craft, beachcombing, scavenger hunts and a guided snorkel safari! 

As well as giving the children the opportunity to learn about and be inspired by the fascinating marine world we will be helping teachers understand how they can use the beach for educational activities.  The project will be topped off with an open evening at the beach with parents to showcase the schools work throughout the year.

It is vital for the future of our seas and coast that people have opportunities to learn about the wildlife in our waters, gain insights into the problems the seas are facing, and learn how everyday things they do can resolve some of  the issues the oceans are contending with.   This project aims to inspire a generation to protect and love the oceans.
