Falmouth Summer Marine Discovery

Falmouth Summer Marine Discovery

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded funding from Cornwall Council's 'Filling the Holiday Gap' programme to run a summer holiday family rock pooling project called: Falmouth's Summer Marine Discovery. We need some little and big explorers to help us check out beaches around Falmouth and discover anemones, crabs, fish and much, much more! Families will learn all they need to know about our local wildlife and at the same time help our scientists to learn more about Falmouth's precious natural heritage.

Participation in the project is FREE OF CHARGE and is open to families with school age children living in specific postcodes in the Falmouth area. Transport and healthy meals are also provided. Why not come and join us at the project launch event on Friday the 19th July to find out more.

What does the project involve?

Falmouth's beaches are some of the very best in the country for rock pooling. It's important that we look after them and learn about the wildlife that live there. This project is designed to teach families important information about how to recognise rock pool species and to build a community that will work together learn about our local marine natural heritage.

Over the course of the summer we will visit six different beaches in Falmouth and we will use waterproof devices to take pictures of the animals the we find and our marine scientists will use these to study how the wildlife changes from beach to beach.
