Celebrate Scotland’s Amazing Marine Wildlife at the Scottish Seabird Centre’s Marine Fest this World Ocean Day

One of Scotland’s leading marine conservation and education charities, the Scottish Seabird Centre is hosting their fourth national Marine Fest from 6 to 10 June 2024 in North Berwick. In response to the UN’s World Ocean Day 2024 celebrations, the festival’s packed five-day programme brings together scientists, environmentalists and nature enthusiasts to celebrate Scotland’s globally significant marine wildlife and habitats.

The festival centres around World Ocean Day on 8 June. There will be a full day of activities to help people of all ages connect with the local marine environment. Zoologist, author and Springwatch presenter, Megan McCubbin, will headline proceedings with an in-person talk in the Centre at 6:30pm.

Emily Burton, Conservation Officer for the Scottish Seabird Centre said: “We’re thrilled to be celebrating World Ocean Day with visitors and the local community. We hope that the activities running throughout the day will inspire participants to get outside and enjoy the incredible marine wildlife and habitats found around the Scottish coast. With a range of outdoor events, family friendly sessions, and conservation talks, we hope there will be something for everyone.”
