Amazing Algae Flags!

This week scientists from the Marine Biological Association worked with students from All Saints Academy, Plymouth and local artist Lucy Birbeck, to help design six large seaweed themed flags that will be displayed around Tinside Lido over the summer.


This is the second year that marine themed flags will be on display, and comes from an idea thought up by members of the Blue Sound Action group to raise public awareness of local marine life.

Watch this space for updates on when the flags will be on display! For more pictures from the day and other Blue Sound events, please see our flickr stream here.

This project is funded by the Marinexus project, in partnership with Blue Sound, an initiative of the Marine Biological Association.
