What is it

Beach Cadets is a Marine Biology Club

for teens aged 12-15 dedicated to

studying and conserving marine life

in our seas, our marine environment

and our welsh beaches. 

As a Cadet, young people study marine

biology in depth, learning field study skills

and taking part in conservation work and

national citizen science surveys.

Members, and their families, also get the

opportunity to go on field trips that are

arranged seasonally throughout the year

and take part in any of the family events

organised each month.

Age 12-15
