Blu-ee Fest is a festival for those who are passionate about the ocean who want to learn more about marine life and to find out how they can better protect our seas. We want you to leave the festival having:
– reconnected with the ocean
– learnt more about marine life and coastal eco systems
– made new like-minded friends who are as passionate as you about our seas
– feeling inspired to realise your potential as a conservationist
– with a new found confidence and realisation that YOU have an important role to play in protecting our ocean
“Many of us ask what can I, as one person, do, but history shows us that everything good and bad starts because somebody does something or does not do something.”
– Sylvia Earle, Oceanographer
Ocean, ocean and more ocean
Throughout the weekend there will be a series of inspirational talks and panel discussions by conservationists who are protecting the ocean in different ways – from activists, business owners to artists. You can attend lectures on topics ranging from marine biology to marine mammal behaviour (aimed for non-scientists). Learn how to ID our most common coastal species and take part in beachside surveys that will contribute to scientific data.
With lots going on, you will be able to pick and choose which workshops most take your fancy.
The weekend is fully catered so meal times are a great opportunity to get to know others and to share ideas. And when you need a quiet moment you can go outdoors to breath in the fresh air and enjoy the ocean right on our doorstep…..or maybe even take a minute to experience our Humpback Whale sound bathing room!!
A weekend getaway
