…and shoes and gloves
While it is possible to imagine that someone might drop the odd water bottle on the beach, the other food containers, tooth brushes etc should not even get anywhere near the sea.
I live on Shoreham Beach in the UK which is a nature reserve with a globally rare habitat called vegetated shingle. Concerned about the damage that global issues such as climate change and pollution might have on my beach I am visiting scientists and experts around the world to find out more about these conservation issues. During my travels I have also encountered some amazing wildlife and also met people helping the ocean. I share my experiences through this blog and by visiting schools.
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.
