Join this online talk to find out more about the incredible marine wildlife around Plymouth.
Plymouth Sound is home to exotic-looking marine life from corals to cuttlefish, but it isn’t just colourful in the visual sense. There are fish that build nests, crabs that decorate themselves and sea slugs that recycle weapons to mention just a few, while even so-called ‘simple creatures’ like limpets and sea anemones have surprising tricks up their sleeves!
Paul Naylor will tell their stories through his underwater photographs and video clips.
Paul is a Devon-based marine biologist and underwater photographer with a passion for showing people what beautiful and fascinating animals live around the British coast, through articles, talks, films, social media and TV, as well as his book – Great British Marine Animals (the 4th edition was published recently). His footage has appeared on the BBC’s One Show, Blue Planet UK, Countryfile and Autumnwatch.
Paul works with conservation organisations such as Devon Wildlife Trust to raise the profile of our wonderful marine life and the importance of caring for our seas.
