I have always found the oceans fascinating and love to go tide pooling and beachcombing. I have heard about the terrible damage that pollution and global warming are doing to the world's oceans which is very worrying. So I have decided to go on an expedition to see for myself and raise awareness by reporting on what I find out. I hope also to experience some of the oceans beautiful and amazing wildife before it is too late. I hope you will join me, Ed the Bear, on my adventures.
One of the main things that Ed the Bear and I have in common is our love for the ocean. We are also both very concerned about the damage that is being done to the oceans and marine wildlife by human activities.
Ed the Bears adventures begin at his local beach the Shoreham Beach Local Nature Reserve. The beach was designated a nature reserve to protect the local and globally rare habitat ‘vegetated shingle’. This is made up of over 90 different types of special plants that grow on the beach and provide a home for a wide range of wildlife such as birds, butterflies, bees and lizards.
Ed discovered that this beach was threatened by global issues such as climate change. Ed begins his adventures to find out more about these dangers and how they might affect his beach. On the way he encounters some amazing wildlife.
