Dive Deeper: Champions of the Yorkshire Coast

Dive Deeper: Champions of the Yorkshire Coast

Join us as we explore the Yorkshire Coast in the next instalment of ‘Dive Deeper’.

Enjoy a relaxed evening of informative talks on Tuesday 7th June from 6:30pm, as our speakers take you on a journey of discovery of the magnificent Yorkshire coast.

We are delighted to present our three local champions:

Andy Doyle, Coastguard Search & Rescue Pilot

Helicopter Search & Rescue

With years of experience as a pilot in the Royal Air Force, search and rescue specialist Andy will share what it takes to operate the 999 helicopter SAR service to HM Coastguard. From the technical specialism of flying a rescue-configured Sikorsky S-92A to training and rescue operations, Andy will share the work of this vital, life-saving service, Bristow’s pilots, winch paramedics, winch operators, engineers and support staff based at Humberside Airport.

Dr James Wood, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust

Bringing Oysters and Sea grass back to the Humber

Once so many oysters inhabited the mouth of the Humber, you could walk from one side to the other stepping entirely on oyster shells! No longer the case, the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust alongside the University of Hull have formed the Humber Aquaculture Partnership, a two-year project funded by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund, located at Spurn Point with the aim of re-introducing a number of species including native oysters whilst also regenerating the hugely important sea grass habitats. James is the North Sea Fisheries and Research Manager for the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and will detail the changing habitat at Spurn and the amazing oyster ecosystem engineers that work to keep our seas healthy!
