The seas that surround the UK are home to over half our wildlife – more than 30,000 species. It also contributes to flood management and water purification, as well as providing oxygen for every breath we take. Suffice to say that it is important for us all to continue to look after our coastlines and the creatures that inhabit it, especially given that you’re never more than 70 miles from the coastline.
