Do you have memories about marine mammals? Stories about sharks or salmon? Perhaps you could write a book about your time on a boat? If so, we want to hear from you!
Whether it’s memories from childhood, tales from your grandparents, thoughts on how the seas have changed, photographs,letters or old shell collections … we want to bring these stories up from the depths.
The importance of sharing stories of this kind, especially those passed down the generations, cannot be understated, because, unlike data already in archives, people’s stories are constantly at risk of being forgotten. That means that sharing memories could not be more important to be carried forward into the future!
You can share your story, photos and videos with our team by clicking the link below. We would also love to hear audio recordings of you recounting your special memory, these can submitted here.
Our Living Seas Team will be exploring and recording stories at our Sea and Me Events. Join us to share you memories, photos, letters etc and have conversations about our incredible marine heritage.
The memories and stories we collect will be displayed on The Living Seas Wales virtual archive which can be viewed by anyone. This means those special marine memories will never be forgotten!
