The NWT is aiming to encourage a new generation to care for the sea's wildlife by celebrating all things marine until August 11.

Head of people and wildlife at NWT, David North, said: "Our Norfolk coast is special, home to grey and common seals and rare breeding seabirds including little and Sandwich terns.

"If you can't tell your winkles from your whelks, or don't know the difference between a shore crab and an edible crab, join us for a fun session rockpooling at West Runton Beach.

"If you would like to get directly involved in helping marine wildlife then you could join one of our regular monthly beach cleans."

The wildlife trust campaigns for better protection for wildlife around the UK.
