Family fun days on the beach

Marine conservationist Lauren Eyles partnered with the Celtic Deep marine experience company to offer some amazing beach days to help educate and delight residents and visitors to Pembrokeshire this half term.

The event, sponsored by Hiraeth Energy, was aimed at connecting people to the ocean, and to the incredible animals that live there.

The activities were a guided introduction to snorkelling, and guided rocky shore adventures.

Snorkelling is a great way to explore Pembrokeshire’s amazing underwater world, whilst also building water skills and confidence. The event guides introduced participants to the right equipment to use and the wildlife that might be encountered including Catsharks, Jellyfish and fish. 

For those who weren’t able to participate in the snorkelling, a world of adventure on the beach was available to go searching for shark egg cases and hidden rockpool treasure.

Nature and biodiversity are hugely important to both Hiraeth Energy and Magnora Offshore Wind. We aim for our projects to be world-leading in terms of their impact on the natural environment, improving the outcomes for nature whenever possible.

Speaking about the events, Hiraeth Energy Partner Joseph Kidd said:

“The old ways of generating electricity cause massive environmental damage through air pollution and climate change. We see our projects as the opportunity not only to generate huge amounts of clean electricity, but also to help improve nature and biodiversity wherever possible.

“We are delighted to be able to support access to, and understanding of, the beautiful coastal areas around Wales, through our sponsorship of these educational events for families.”
