Vertex Festival 2018: Coast
28th October 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
“an absolute beacon in a rather dark sea”
The Community of Arran Seabed Trust (COAST) established the first No Take Zone in the UK in 2008. Their work has resulted in an amazing recovery of the seabed ecosystem and fish stocks in Lamlash Bay and other areas around Arran.
Jenny Stark, Coast’s Marine Outreach Officer, will give an illustrated talk on Coast’s remarkable achievements and how living in West Kilbride we can benefit from and support their work.
COAST is recognised throughout Scotland and internationally as a dynamic community group that leads the way on marine conservation and restoration, and as a hub for marine science in the Clyde. It has won various awards and has been described by George Monbiot as “pathfinders” and by the Scottish Government as “trailblazers”.
Doors Open 7.30pm
