Undersea Explorers

Undersea Explorers was an innovative education project that brought the North Sea to pools across Yorkshire.

Created by Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, Undersea Explorers used realistic props to bring the marine habitats and wildlife of the North Sea to the safety (and warmth!) of an indoor swimming pool.

A life-sized seal, glow in the dark jellyfish and a large archway modelled on the Norfolk chalk reefs along with kelp forests, lobster pots and more were all used alongside a range of games to teach children and families about North Sea habitats, wildlife and marine conservation.

Whilst aimed at school children aged 7-11, sessions were also run for families and other groups.
