Children invited to become Marine Warriors

Children are being encouraged to learn about marine life and the beautiful Sussex coastline with the launch of Worthing’s new ‘Marine Warriors’ initiative.

The activity, created by Worthing Borough Council’s Coastal Office, aims to inspire kids to follow a fun and educational seaside trail to the rockpools, where they can explore, discover and learn about the beautiful world beneath the sea.

The Marine Warrior backpack, which is free to hire from the Coastal Office, contains a compass, magnifying glass, crabbing net, bucket and spade. All items have been carefully chosen as eco-friendly and sustainably sourced to highlight the plastic pollution crisis in our seas.

New mini aquarium is teeming with local marine life

A native marine life aquarium which shows the richness of the waters off the Sussex coast can now be visited inside Worthing Coastal Office.

Rockpool Reef was created by the Councils’ Coastal Wardens - who collected water, sediment and corals for the tank, by hand.

Already, the abundance of marine life which was living inside has shown itself, including cuttlefish fry, shrimp, crab, hermit crab and small mullet fry.

The team is looking forward to documenting the creatures’ growth and telling their stories to anyone who wishes to visit.

Talks will include fascinating facts - like learning the common prawns inside the aquarium are almost invisible when hunkered down in the sand - hiding or awaiting their next meal.
