We are fortunate to have this event here on our doorstep! Through film, talks, facts, and discussion 4 speakers will share how they have observed, recorded, advised, and broadcast the effects of plastic, climate change, over-fishing and pollution on our seas. Hear and see what they have done to change attitudes and the actions they’ve taken. Lyme Regis sits overlooking Lyme Bay – there is a wealth of sea-life and wonders on its doorstep. Find out how you can help preserve it for future generations.

Marine Conservation: our shore and sea need protecting both locally and globally – come and see what we have & how it’s being achieved. Plastic Free Lyme Regis will be there with tips for reducing the plastic that we use.
