We're setting up a group to raise awareness of Somerset’s marine environment. The group will be organising events and campaigns, and will be planning habitat surveys along our coast.

Marine ID

Part of our Living Seas project is to identify and learn more about the wildlife that lives in Somerset’s sea. Find out how to ID that ‘thing’ you saw and don't forget to tell us about it.

What is that 'thing'?

Hinkley Point C Community Impact Mitigation Fund

On September 1st  we applied to the Hinkley Point C CIMF for some exciting coastal work offsetting some of the impacts of the Hinkley Point C build.

If we're successful in being awarded funds, (we hope to hear back in Spring 2018), through the brilliant activities we’ve planned, we will be able to work with people of all ages that those that live, work, volunteer and visit Somerset’s Coast and give our coastal project – and Somerset’s coast itself - a brilliant future. You can help us strengthen our campaign here.
