Introduction to the Marine World

Introduction to the Marine World

Are you fascinated by the sea? Or find rockpool creatures exciting? Then join four of our scientists for a series of five illustrated lectures exploring worms, shells, crabs and seaweeds over 5 weeks.

The lectures will provide an overview of the marine world and the animals and seaweeds you are likely to find on our local shores.

Each session will comprise of an illustrated talk with the opportunity to examine and handle specimens. There will be plenty of time to ask questions and discuss each week’s topic.

No previous knowledge is needed - just an interest in finding out more about sea creatures, where they live and why they are important.

The proposed structure is provided below, although we reserve the right to alter the order of the talks.

Week 1 – An introduction to the marine world

Week 2 – The Wonderful World of Worms – why worms are so important to life in the sea

Week 3 – Shells and how to identify them

Week 4 – Crabs, starfish, anemones and others less well known

Week 5 - Seaweeds


This is a very special opportunity to see what goes on behind the scenes at Wales’ National Museum and to learn from some of the top scientists in their field.

Tea and coffee will be provided. You are welcome to bring a packed lunch or visit our catering facilities.
