As the largest and leading marine charity in the UK, the Marine Conservation Society are passionate about sharing their recently collected data to help communities and individuals add their voice to finding solutions to our marine issues. This session included activities to introduce participants to the secret underwater world in Scotland and some of our amazing ocean superheroes.
