Manx Wildlife Trust Touch Tanks return for 2011
The Manx Wildlife Trust Touch Tanks were one of the main Marine Day attractions from the 2010 Queenie Festival. We are happy to announce that they will be back in 2011, featuring the many of the small creatures which exist in the shores around us. This attraction was especially well received by young children, and has helped develop awareness of marine life. The Manx Wildlife Trust will also be broadcasting films focusing on many different aqua themes. The Marine Days take place on Port St Mary harbour on Saturday 2nd July and Sunday 3rd July.
The Manx Wildlife Trust will also be providing rockpooling sessions during the Sure Mobile Beach party on Friday 1st July. Rockpooling is another interesting way to examine and discover marine life. Creatures like sea stars, sea urchins, sea slugs and sea cucumbers are amongst the species that can be discovered during this magnified look at marine life. The sessions will be run by Eleanor Stone, Marine Officer of the Manx Wildlife Trust.
