Irish Sea Day @ Cloughmore Centre Rostrevor
Jul 27 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

The 27th of July marks the first ever Irish Sea Day, where each nation is hosting events to celebrate the wildlife and communities that live and work around the Irish Sea. A joint event is being held in Rostrever Co.Down by Shifting tides, SeasearchNI, Ulster Wildlife, RSPB, SWAN, the Northern Ireland Marine task Force and the Irish Wildlife Trust linking the North and South of our beautiful island and raising awareness of the issues facing the waters around us.


There will be a Rockpool Ramble from 10 – 12 where you will get the chance to explore the local rockpools and identify the wildlife found there. The Northern Ireland Marine Task Force will give a talk at 2 looking at the threats and pressures facing the marine environment. At 3 there will be a presentation from Ulster Wildlife and the Irish Wildlife Trust looking at Marine Protected Areas both sides of the border. While this is going on SeasearchNI and Shifting Tides are running an observer course for divers and snorkellers. If you are interested in registering for the 2 day course, follow this link.
