COMMUNITY OF ARRAN SEABED TRUST (COAST)
To purchase interpetation panels and travelling resources as well as online information, with the aim of informing, engaging and exciting residents and visitors alike. This will help to improve ocean literacy and stewardship as well as public support.
By increasing public awarness and involvement in one of the first Scottish Marine Protected Areas (MPA) it is hoped to encourage enjoyment in coastal and marine activities and learning about Arran's unique living marine heritage, both cultural and natural.
The grant from the Arran Trustwill allow COAST to develop and purchase fixed information points which will reach out to different audiences. The mobile interpretation resources will then allow them to reach out to schools, groups and visitors and take exhibitions to local events and have Arran'sMPA presence at mainland activities.
