Join Dr Africa Gómez on a walk along the seafront at Victoria Dock and learn about how urban settings can be successfully managed for biodiversity.
The City of Hull is crossed by the River Hull and its southern boundary is made by the Humber Estuary, a site of international importance by its migrating and wintering birds.
Mud is a defining feature of both the lower reaches of the river Hull and the Humber, mud rich in worms, and small shrimps and snails that provide food for wading birds. During the autumn and winter, the river Hull and Humber frontage are home to Curlews, Redshank, several gull species and Cormorants.
During the walk, Africa will talk about biodiversity in and around the city of Hull and the natural regeneration of the saltmarsh in the lower reaches of the river Hull.
