We're currently preparing our 2021 festival programme. View our previous festival websites
We need all coast lovers to help us search the shoreline for shark and skate egg cases! Our team of marine biologists will show you what to look for, where to look, and help you to identify what species of shark laid the egg cases you've found.
Collecting this information helps us to understand the different kinds of sharks and skates in our seas. It can also indicate potential spawning areas and nursery grounds for the young shark pups. Helping us to search for egg cases is an easy and fun way to get involved in local shark conservation, without even getting wet!

Castlerock Beach: Saturday 10 July, 12pm – 2pm
Portabllintrae Beach: Sunday 11 July, 1pm – 3pm
