Young Strandliners

Strandliners is a local not-for-profit environmental organisation.

We will…
Discover the stories our coastal wildlife can tell us,
Become citizen scientists,
Learn how our actions impact the environment,
Enjoy wild beach activities.

We can campaign for a better environment.

Our free sessions will be at various sites in Hastings & Rother. Sessions will generally be on Saturday mornings. Timings may have to be flexible to work with tides and events, but the following are dates we are offering, including two events that this group could be part of.

What will the group do?

Topics and activities may include…
Plastic pollution 
Microplastic (nurdles & more)
Citizen science surveys
Seaweed search – climate change & biodiversity indicators
Shark, skate & ray egg case identification & recording
Rock pooling
Plastic polymers
A guide to environmental organisations
Black light investigation
Beachcombing (trash & treasure)
Coastline biodiversity (Bioblitz)
Creating local change
And more when we get together and discuss…
