Cornwall’s beaches are the ideal outdoor learning environment and our expert guided activities provide hands-on educational fun for children of all ages. Our experienced staff have taught hundreds of children about marine wildlife and conservation. With a huge selection of suitable locations in Cornwall and Devon, we can arrange trips at a site convenient for your organisation.
We cater for groups of up to 30 children. During these events children conduct fun surveys, photographing the species they find using one of our waterproof cameras. These images provide a record that will be checked by our experts and submitted to the National Biodiversity Network. A report of the day’s activity, including the images and details of your finds, will be emailed following the event.
A growing number of studies have shown that interaction with the ocean and other ‘blue spaces’ can have a positive effect on mental health – particularly in terms of stress reduction and well-being. Rock pooling is a wonderfully engaging activity which is outdoors, in nature and beside the sea. The Guardian has an insightful article about the benefits of living near and making the most of blue spaces in such ways.
