purpose of World Oceans Day was to educate the public about the oceans
of the world, at least for one day in the year. How well we achieved this
purpose is open to debate. One thing that was clear from the displays is
that there are gaps in the knowledge of both the younger enthusiasts and
the older people of what actually lives in the sea off Shoreham. Some children
had never heard of a sea anemone. How can the marine environment protected
for the future generations if the public do not know what lives in the
aims of World Oceans Day were modest as the event format can only allow
a brief glimpse of the undersea world. The purpose of the lobster race
was to demonstrate how a lobster searches out and discovers its food.
If Mary Green had actually attended the event before she wrote the letter,
she would have found that the displays were backed up by a comprehensive
information package about life in the sea. This can found on the internet
by typing in <http://www.glaucus.co.uk>
and finding a comprehensive web site with lots of information.
is lots of information about how to avoid bad practices when rockpooling
on the shore, not just dogmatic statements but the scientific reasons why
written in language that parents and children can understand. This was
available at the World Oceans Day Fayre, both on computer and in the Shorewatch
newsletters and Glaucus journals.

rights, an extension to animals of the sensitivity to and respect for
life inherent in the concept of human rights. Those who advocate animal
rights claim that because animals possess sentience (the capacity to feel
pain, to fear, or to experience enjoyment or happiness), they have a basic
right to be treated in ways that respect their independent value. For human
beings to exploit animals is a form of 'speciesism'; by analogy to racism,
we allow the interests of our own species to override the interests of
other species. The main areas where human beings currently fail to observe
animal rights are in intensive farming methods, commercial and sport hunting,
and the use of animals for scientific testing and experimentation (vivisection)
and in the destruction of their habitats (see endangered species). Frustrated
by the continued abuse of animals, organizations such as the Animal Liberation
Front have taken extreme action by fire-bombing shops, raiding laboratories,
and threatening scientists.

CHARLES II AND THE GREAT ESCAPE
Talk by Helen Poole
story of King Charles II's adventures after the Battle Of Worcester culminating
in his flight through Sussex and escape to France via Shoreham.
Charles II and his escape through Sussex opened at Marlipins on 25 May,
the same day as the 25th running of the Royal Escape Race which is organised
annually by the Sussex Yacht Club. The exhibition goes on until 30 June,
Tuesday to Saturday, 10.30 to 4.30. All are welcome as it provides a rare
opportunity to glimpse our county 350 years ago through a collection of
pictures and objects brought together by a mildly obsessed Curator (me).
from other Sussex Museums, stately homes, Libraries and Record Offices
have been very generous in lending material which comes together for the
first time, against a backdrop of material from the modern Earl of Essex's
Regiment, the excellent re-enactment group.
2 to 16 June Marlipins also houses an exhibition of The Lost
Adur, a rare chance to see some of the pictures and objects acquired
years by Adur District Council and not usually accessible to the
general public. They range from a large oil of the countryside behind Shoreham
to a lovely print by Philip Dunn, the well known modern Brighton
artist who opens the exhibition tonight.
if that were not enough excitement for one small museum, we also have a
collection of bygones relating to Food and Drink, installed to link in
with the Sussex Museums Group's feature on the subject for Museums Month.
If you can remember Camp Coffee bottles and the Ovaltinies, the display
will bring back memories.
is clearly the place to be in June, with the Adur Festival etc.
