Adur will be one of the UK leaders in presenting the eleventh environmental exhibition of World Oceans Day on Coronation Green, Shoreham-by-Sea. Find out what lives in the sea and on the seashore off the Sussex coast, with exhibits hosted by local experts and enthusiasts of the undersea world. Live lobsters and crabs, a rock pool aquarium, the whale and dolphin exhibition, a touch table of strandline exhibits found on the shore and other interactive displays will be on display under the marquee on the green overlooking the River Adur by the footbridge. Allow at least an hour for an educational exhibition for the youngest to the oldest member of the family. Exhibitors will be able to find the time to answer questions about marine life.

Adur World Oceans Day is run by a committee comprising representatives of the British Marine Life Study Society, the Sea Watch Foundation, Friends of Shoreham Beach, the Ouse & Adur Rivers Trust and other groups, with support from Adur District Council.
World Oceans Day was declared at the Earth Summit in 1992.
For 2011 the event will form part of the Environmental Festival, the Food and Drink Festival and Farmer's Market
