Competition encourages schools to shout about wildlife

Schools in the south west have the chance to win a tour of some of the world’s most cutting-edge marine technology.

OPAL South West and Plymouth University have launched a competition giving pupils and teachers the chance to shout about wildlife projects they have carried out.


Sea hare from Scarborough

Yesterday I saw something I'd never seen before: a sea hare. Adrian Norris from the Yorkshire Naturalists Union found it whilst running a marine mollusc course with Paula from Seasearch NE (an organisation for divers who record the marine species they see). Sea hares are marine molluscs and get their name from their rounded shape and from the "rhinophores" (sticking up bits near the front of the animal), that are said to look a bit like hares ears. What do you think?
