Harbour

Chichester and Langstone harbours are huge and wonderful nature reserves, but they're under increasing threat, from sea level rise and other effects of climate change, from pollution, habitat and biodiversity loss, and from mankind.

Is nature there thriving or declining? What do salt marshes do for nature, and what can we do to protect them?  How is the oyster regeneration project going? Will they survive the pollution? Why is coastal squeeze bad for nature and what can we do about it? Should we be creating new habitats/nature reserves?

Join us on Zoom to hear about preparing them for a climate resilient future. The link you will need is
