Connected ecosystems

© Chrys Mellor
At over 95 miles long, Yorkshire has an extensive stretch of coast, but it doesn’t just stop at lines drawn on a map.

We’re connected to the rest of the world by oceanic currents that sweep past our shores, through the weather systems that roll in from all sides, with the mobile species that fly and swim incredible distances to visit our coastline, and via the people of past, present and future coastal communities.

Have you ever imagined what it looks like beneath the waves? Or how marine plants help to clean our atmosphere, just like plants on land do? Have you watched the seabirds diving and wondered what they are catching? Or have you thought about how our coastline might look in the future?
