About the event

August is Essex Wildlife Trust’s Marine Month.  Marine Month is a chance to celebrate and enjoy Essex’s coastal and marine wildlife - but it’s also an opportunity to raise awareness of the challenges facing our seas and do our bit to safeguard them for the future. 

Activities will include:

Seashore Scavenger Hunt

Come and find out more about our seashore wildlife! Join a member of our team to hunt for plants and animals living on the Naze seashore and discover more about the wonderful world beneath the waves. Suitable for families this event will begin with a short presentation about Essex marine wildlife before heading down to the beach to look for seashore life at The Naze.

Beach Clean

Join us for a guided litter pick along The Naze beaches and the edge of the John Weston nature reserve. Conservation is key and we intend to leave nothing but footprints. Plastic is the problem so let us be the solution. Gloves and kneeling pads are recommended for removing micro-plastics and cotton bud sticks from the sand; however, litter pickers and buckets are provided.
