We are lucky to have over 13,000km2 of Marine Conservation Zones and the longest National Trail in the UK, the South West Coast Path, at a staggering 630 miles of continuous coastline trail. All this makes the South West an oceans lover’s paradise.
The Ocean along the South West is filled with life and is home to some of the most interesting and important animals on earth such as:
During February Half Term we’re holding ‘Sea the Difference: Ocean Adventures’ and will be celebrating our local Ocean and all the amazing Ocean activities you can get involved in right on our doorstep. The South West is home to some amazing conservation organisations, reserves, and success stories and throughout Half Term week we’ll have guest organisations pop up stands around the NMA. They’ll be here to promote their work and help us with our charitable mission of ‘Connecting us with our Oceans’.
Come to the NMA to meet a whole host of exciting charities and partners all working throughout the South West to champion our beautiful coastal waters. Meet scientists, conservationists and marine heroes! Take part in activities, games and adventures!
