The event will also feature talks on algae and a short film screening to deepen understanding of the marine environment.

Rob and Dawn from Seasearch East, specialists in algae, will be assisting with further identification and examining a few specimens. They’re also integral in helping the Blue Hope Alliance with regular Maerl surveys, contributing valuable data for marine conservation efforts.

Refreshments will be provided, and the event is free for all attendees. No booking is required; participants can simply turn up at the Coigach Community Hall to join in the exploration of the wonders of seaweed and marine life.
