Details

Essex coastal and marine wildlife is varied and fascinating but it also under pressure from a number of threats. During this talk Rachel Langley (Living Seas Coordinator at Essex Wildlife Trust) will introduce the Essex coast and some of the species that make it their home, give an insight into some of the projects Essex Wildlife Trust is working on to help protect and restore our marine wildlife, and focus in on the main threats facing our seas today – including pollution.

This talk is being run as part of Poly the Plastic Seal’s tour around Essex in 2020. For more information about Poly, go to essexwt.org.uk/seal-sculpture
