Explorers Wild about Wildlife on the Seashore
Episode 1: Seashells & Friends
The Explorers team in Galway will take you on a journey down to the seashore where they discover some of the coolest seashell creatures. Learn what seashells are bivalves and which ones are gastropods, how they survive the harsh environment, and what they like to eat!
Noirin tells us all about the seashell treasures along the upper shoreline. She also makes a discovery - which looks like a seashell but its not!
Anna finds some of the tiniest periwinkles and top shells with the coolest spirals feasting on seaweeds in the rockpools in the middle shore.
Padraic also finds his way to the lower shore hunting down the carnivore dog whelk, that loves to make limpets into soup!
Have fun and keep Exploring!
