Events – Beach Safari in Galway

A Beach Safari will take place this weekend at Ballyloughane beach, in Renmore, Galway this Sunday August 9th from 1 pm. This excellent opportunity to explore a most diverse and rich accesible marine habitat is organised by Galway City Council and Galway Atlantiquaria.

Ballyloughane Beach, Renmore, Galway

Ecologist Dr. Noirin Burke will lead the Safari at the shore which is an important nursery    area for juvenile flat fish such as plaice and flounder, as well as providing a home for brown  shrimp (otherwise known as crangons), sandhoppers, seaweeds and crabs. At low tide, the  shoreline can be explored safely and is an ideal place to observe and learn more about  some of our exciting marine life up close.

For more information, contact the Atlantaquaria on 091 585100, atlantaquaria@eircom.net or the Environment Education Officer, Galway City Council on 091 536564 enveducation@galwaycity.ie.
