Ocean Superheroes - World Seagrass Day
Monday 1st March at 10:00 (GMT)
Best suited to: ages 7-11
Duration: 45 mins
Created in partnership with the LIFE Recreation ReMEDIES project to save our seabed, our Ocean Superheroes live lesson looks at some of the fascinating underwater habitats found here in the UK like seagrass, maerl and kelp. We’ll be exploring common species, where they can be found, human impacts, and how these superhero habitats help combat climate change!
Mon 1st Mar 12.30 (GMT)
Join our National Seasearch Coordinator Charlotte Bolton live as she visits Portland Harbour in Dorset at low tide to see what marine wonders she can find. There are seagrass meadows all around the harbour, creating a home for juvenile fish, small crabs and anemones. On very low spring tides the seagrass here may be exposed at the lowest point of the sandy beach.
