We’re teaming up with the Wildlife Trust to celebrate World Oceans Day!

Get involved to discover more about our amazing underwater world and how we can all help protect our wonderful marine wildlife! Join us on Aberystwyth seafront for hands-on activities, wildlife spotting, interactive talks, recycled crafts, a parade and more.

Take part in fantastic activities and games including limpet stacking, slime making and sand sculptures. You can also take a look at the marine world through a microscope or immerse yourself in an augmented reality seashore and have a look through some virtual reality goggles!

Experts including those from Chester Zoo and the Wildlife Trust will be running talks in the bandstand every half hour from 11am – 3.30pm on everything marine-related, from conservation projects to penguins!
