(Sarah Welton)  Much of Dorset’s coast is now a World Heritage Site; one of Britain’s first underwater marine wildlife reserves is at Kimmeridge.

Add Dorset’s rock pools and coastal waters, the unique shingle bank of Chesil Beach and the Fleet lagoon, Pool Harbour with its saltmarshes and islands, the limestone cliffs of Portland and Purbeck and other areas, you begin to understand the reasons for the extraordinary richness of the plant and animals that flourish along Dorset’s beaches.

The author worked for the Dorset Wildlife Trust and similar organisations for many years, so has a detailed knowledge of the subject of this book.

78 pages. Soft covers.
