World Oceans Weekend 2013 Rockcliffe
Here is a selection of images from the weekend, World Oceans Weekend held down at Rockcliffe. On the Saturday we held a beach clean and four volunteers turned up to assist us, with one couple travelling down from Kilmarnock, we are very grateful to everyone for the assistance over the weekend. The NTS theme on our stand this year was whales and dolphins and other sea mammals, We had lots of interesting things to show visitors. These included baleen plates from Blue, Humpback and Minke whales, the skulls of harbour porpoise, common dolphin and a Grey seal skull. The event is a great opportunity of raising everyone's awareness of how wonderful and important our marine heritage is in our lives, and having some fun at the same time.
