Create your own sea story

National Marine Week starts on the 23rd July! This celebration of our UK seas is a special time and at Wildlife Watch we're celebrating with a competition.



The competition

The homes of the mice that live by the sea in Sea Story are decorated with beautiful seashells and marine-themed objects, bringing the sea to their home.

We want you to go marine-wild! Create something for your home made from marine wild wonders. This could be from actual seaweed, drift wood, pottery, dead seaweed that you find at the beach, or you could use your imagination and create something yourself! Perhaps you could knit your very own dolphin? Or make a papier-mache shell?

*Remember - never take anything from the beach that you shouldn't. This includes live animals that may still be inhabiting their shells!*

What can you win?

Ten lucky entrants will win a copy of Brambly Hedge's beautiful book Sea Story.

Early one summer’s morning Poppy, Dusty, Primrose and Wilfred leave Brambly Hedge behind and set sail in Dusty’s boat the 'Periwinkle', on a journey that will take them down the river to Sandy Bay. But it isn’t all plain sailing and the mice have an important mission to fulfil before they can return to Brambly Hedge…

RRP: £7.99
