In line with the latest government guidelines, the Jurassic Coast Trust is urging people to stay at home and avoid busy coastal sites. Whilst it is important to have time in nature, it is simply not worth putting yourself and those in your community at risk of infection.

“The thought of not being able to fully enjoy the Jurassic Coast is a painful one, especially if you live near it. Yet, it is the situation we find ourselves in. But the beauty of our World Heritage Site will wait for us, the stories locked within its geology can still be explored through the mind’s eye and our love for this special place can continue to grow. We’ll be working hard to help that happen,” said Sam Scriven, Head of Heritage and Conservation at the Jurassic Coast Trust.

In order to help parents who are home-schooling their children during this challenging time, we will be producing engaging and educational online content relating to the Jurassic Coast. Anyone with children at home who would like to access this free content to keep them busy, please email info@jurassiccoast.org.

New content will include interactive webpages for kids – both educational and fun – as well as a regular newsletter all about the coast, its fossils, dinosaurs, geology and historical figures such as palaeontologist and fossil collector Mary Anning. The content is aimed at children aged 6 to 11 but will have something for everyone!

The Jurassic Coast is both dynamic and resilient, and we hope that through our content, we can inspire those qualities in our communities.

We will continue to support partner organisation across the coast, to ensure they can recover from the current situation and are still able to deliver their services to visitors.
