The heritage of the Tyne to Tees seascape is locally and nationally significant and deserves to be better explored and celebrated. We need people help us do this; this may be through monitoring our fragile coastal habitats for species unique to our cliff tops such as the Durham Argus Butterfly, helping out with our on-water activities, or researching our maritime heritage and joining in an archaeology dig. Further information on any of these opportunities can be requested by contacting
