Links and Organisations

Marine Conservation Society: dedicated to protecting the marine environment and its wildlife.
British Marine Life Study Society: an odd looking website, but somewhere in there is a great deal of good information.
Cetacea: whales, dolphins and porpoises.
The Basking Shark Project
CoastNET: loads of good stuff on coastal management in the UK, and lots of opportunities for networking. Not surprising, given the title.
Coastal Explorer: a project from Kent with an online book, ideal for teachers and students needing coastal Geography resources at Key Stage 2.
