The coast guard keeps an eye on the sea

Coast guard

Summer sea newspaper 2018

An afternoon at the beach? An ideal time to browse throug the summer sea newspaper!
This is already the 11th year that the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) and West-Flanders province keep you informed about a wide range of marine-related subjects. Find out more about walrusses, microplastics and drowned Ostend. The newspaper also features a shell identification chart so that you can learn all the names of the shell at your feet. 
You can get the newspaper at the VLIZ offices or at the visitor centres and tourism offices along the Belgian coast. Sadly, it is only available in Dutch, but that's a good motivation to work on your language skills, no?
