A celebration of the Great British seaside!

Wild Waters Week is packed full of special talks and events at Portsmouth Aquarium to celebrate the fantastic marine life we have here in Britain, and to encourage people of all ages to get more involved in the wildlife on our doorstep.

The week kicked off with the Wild Waters beach clean along Southsea Beach, supported by Sea Champions Mark and Lowri, which had over 50 people taking part!

There were some award winning weird finds amongst the litter collected - prizes were given to those that found the head of a golf club, an (empty!) handbag and a knee-high red Barbie boot!

Following the clean-up, Sea Champions looked after an MCS stand at the aquarium giving them a platform to discuss the issue of marine litter and the value of Marine Conservation Zones. They also ran a fun quiz for kids all about litter.

A beach clean-up supported by Sea Champions, marked the beginning of Wild Waters Week at Portsmouth Aquarium.
