Sea What's There is an important event set to take place on 9th October, held at Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis.
At Newlands Holidays we are dedicated to reducing our single use plastics. We were delighted to receive a Plastic Free Champion award earlier in the year – so this is an event we are keen to support.
Sea What's There will welcome four inspirational speakers to discuss the effects of plastic, climate change, and overfishing of our seas.
The explorer Willian Thompson is the author of The Book of Tides
, and The World of Tides and Tide Walker
. William has been featured in The Daily Telegraph
, on the BBC, and in The Scotsman
In 2014, along with other scientists, Anne Baker famously took part in eXXpedition. From this experience she gained first hand knowledge of the scale of the challenge of ocean plastic pollution. She developed an in-depth understanding of the impact of plastic on our planet, the oceans, and our health.
