<h2> Explore the shore this summer!</h2> Each year the Wildlife Trusts nationally celebrate the UK&rsquo;s amazing sea animals and plants during National Marine Week, which this year runs from 23 July to 7 August.<br /> <br /> Norfolk Wildlife Trust will be providing lots of opportunities for you and your children to discover Norfolk&rsquo;s coastal and marine wildlife including events at West Runton, <a href="/wildlife-in-norfolk/nature-reserves/reserves/holme-dunes">NWT Holme Dunes</a> and <a href="/wildlife-in-norfolk/nature-reserves/reserves/cley-marshes">NWT Cley Marshes</a>. Why not come along, smell the seaweed, hear the waves break and listen to the calls of gulls overhead while discovering wild treasures along the strandline?<br /> <br /> <a href="/a-living-landscape/living-seas">Read more about our Living Seas</a>
