Seahorse Nursery

Amazing! Even though they might look like mythical creatures, seahorses are very real! See the seahorses grip at seagrass with their curly tails and suck up tiny shrimp with their straw-like snouts; if you're lucky you may even hear their unique "finger-clicking" sounds as they feed.

Conservation Cove

Conservation is at the heart of what we do at SEA LIFE Brighton. There are plenty of opportunities to learn about the threats facing marine life and what you can do to help as you explore with us.

In this area, you will find out more about what SEA LIFE and the SEA LIFE Trust are doing to help threatened marine life and perhaps help us out yourself by signing one of our petitions or picking up a free sustainable
