All Living Things Environmental Film Festival is not just films! ALT EFF is a curation of conversations, masterclasses and engagements to deepen our collective understanding of sustainability and the natural world. Join this special expert session as part of a festival collaboration between The Habitats Trust and ALT EFF.
Who do we share our busy beaches with?
Between the high tide and low tide lines lies a unique strip of land and sea called the ‘intertidal zone’. Exposed at low tide when the water recedes, some shores are left with small pools, called tide pools, that are unusual sanctuaries for mind blowing biodiversity – entire tiny worlds full of life forms thriving right under our noses. They include miniature seaweed forests, pretty sea anemones, flamboyant sea slugs, miniscule crabs and a lot more.
Join us for an exploration into a world you would never expect!
