Norfolk Wildlife Trust is the oldest of the 47 Wildlife Trusts.
All 47 support the Marine Bill and for their part NWT have staged
numerous marine life, many at their new Cley visitor centre. We have contributed photos taken diving off Norfolk but, as explained in our EADT article, lots more local divers are needed to be part of the Seasearch project
