The Cornish fishing town of Looe celebrates its maritime heritage and traditions every year in this annual Festival by the Sea, rescheduled to 19 and 20 July. From 10 am each day along the quayside in East Looe, you can ‘graze along the quay’ sampling great seafood and fish served in our local restaurants and learn about the amazing wildlife that lives along our coastline, in our rivers, woodlands and valleys.
Looe Marine Conservation Group at Looe Festival by the Sea
Come and visit us on the Looe Marine Conservation Group stand to learn about local marine creatures, pick up wildlife identification leaflets and maps/guides on Things to Do in and Around Looe that will introduce you to the wide variety of ways that you can engage with nature in this area. One of the great things about Looe is how accessible it is to see grey seals, occasionally spot dolphins or basking sharks, go crabbing on the quay or rambling over rockpools discovering the amazing variety of creatures that live on and near our shoreline. You might also be interested in volunteering with our group – just ask our expert volunteers on the Looe Marine Conservation Group stand.
Wild Looe Book Signing
Stop Press! Derek Spooner, author of the new ‘Wild Looe’ pocket guide book, will be on the Looe Marine Conservation Group stand signing copies of his recently published book (£5) from which part of the proceeds will be donated to the Looe Marine Conservation Group and Friends of Kilminorth Woods.
