A Spring in lockdown

This is an exceptionally challenging and unprecedented time for all in The Living Coast and across the globe.  The Living Coast team wish all our Friends good health and send gratitude and respect to key workers everywhere.  However, whilst we humans are staying in, nature is waking up for Spring..

A Spring like no other

We are all slowly trying to adjust to our current 'new normal' of life in a world with Covid19.  The health and wellbeing of family, friends, neighbours and our communities is of the greatest importance.  Staying physically active where it is safe to do so can be beneficial for both our mental and physical wellbeing.  Brighton & Hove City Council's Healthwalks team have launched
the Lockdown Walking Challenge to help us do just that.

Many Councils are also having to prioritise essential services at present, which can mean less resources available for things like beach cleans and litter picks.  Please help out by ensuring you take all your litter home with you if you are out exercising.

The Aquifer Partnership launch


The work of the Biosphere's partners is continuing behind the scenes during lockdown.  Recently we marked the launch of the second phase of the Brighton Chalk Management Partnership.  The project aims to protect the aquifer under the chalk block of The Living Coast, which provides drinking water for everyone in the wider Brighton region - a very precious resource.

The Partnership has been renamed The Aquifer Partnership or TAP to mark this second phase.  Learn more about TAP here.

Spring has arrived after a very mild and wet winter, plus keep an eye out for meteors at the end of the month....
