Beach Rangers are a group of young people aged 14-18 who want to discover and explore our coastal wildlife and seascape.
The Beach Rangers meet on the fourth Saturday each month. Activities include rocky shore surveys, beach cleans, seabird walks, practical conservation tasks, wildlife photography, marine mammal surveys, underwater filming and more. We will also investigate how the coastline has changed with industry and development, and how people and wildlife can coexist sharing the coastal environment. The sessions are inclusive to all and encourage team working and problem solving. Perfect if you love nature or being outdoors and a great way to achieve your Duke of Edinburgh or John Muir Awards.
This Saturday 21st August, we’re going on a boat trip so that we can experience seeing the coastline from the Tyne to the Tees from the sea.
We will also be recording any wildlife that we are lucky enough to see as well, such as dolphins, whales and seabirds!
Places are limited, so booking is essential.
Please take travel sickness tablets beforehand, and wear warm, waterproof clothing and comfortable footwear, such as trainers. If you have some binoculars please bring those too, though we’ll have some available for you to borrow.
