Tyne to Tees, shores and seas

Thanks in part to television programmes like Blue Planet, there’s an unprecedented public interest in our seas and in marine conservation. Our oceans play a critical role in producing over half of the oxygen we breathe, in regulating our climate and are home to a biodiverse abundance of life.

So much of our natural, industrial, cultural and maritime heritage lies out-of-sight beneath the waves – through SeaScapes, we’re looking forward to giving it even more attention; inspiring and empowering individuals, communities and businesses to understand, explore and protect our treasured coastline.

About SeaScapes

The heritage of the Tyne to Tees seascape is locally and nationally significant, and deserves to be better explored and celebrated. SeaScapes will do just that. The project is the result of a huge team effort and a lot of planning, and we are over the moon to start!

The project will stimulate communities to have a real and positive impact on our natural world and will make sure that it can still be enjoyed by future generations. We know that encouraging people to get outside will boost their wellbeing, and the beautiful coastline that SeaScapes will showcase is the perfect backdrop for it.
