National Marine Week is The Wildlife Trusts’ nationwide celebration of all things marine. Despite the name, it lasts 15 fun-filled days to allow for the variation in tide times around the country. Here in Devon we are so lucky to possess expansive and dynamic coastlines which host so many incredible species. This fortnight, get out and observe these fantastic landscapes.
