Clear Seas for The Living Coast

Clear Seas for The Living Coast

Do you enjoy being in and near our fantastic Sussex marine environment? The Living Coast has a wealth of world class marine habitats, such as the chalk reefs all along our coast and the muds and saltmarsh of the Adur Estuary. The Clear Seas campaign run helps all those using the sea to look after it, whether on a daily basis, or whether you are simply passing by. Minimising the footprint we leave behind as a visitor or regular user of the Sussex coastline is just as important on land too.

As we head into the summer the number of different butterfly species you can see in The Living Coast area increases and July is the peak time to head out and hunt for them.
