Seashore Code of Conduct.


When you are out and about on the beach or rock pooling.....

....... Remember to follow the Seashore Code of Conduct:

  • Leave live animals and seaweeds where you find them and only take photos home!

  • Always put overturned rocks back carefully as you found them.

  • Make sure a shell is empty before taking it home.

  • Take your litter home with you or put it in a bin.

  • Be careful on the shore at all times - check the tides and keep away from the cliffs.   

  • Report anything unusual washed up on the beach or spotted offshore.

  • Walk and climb carefully, so you don’t knock animals or crush shells.   

  • Wear sensible clothing and footwear.
