NOTE: While the image to the left shows a CD-ROM. You receive a USB stick instead of a CD.

This brand new, inexpensive USB is your key to almost everything you can see on the seashore – from Algae to Worms, with major excursions into Birds and Plants.

Almost 600 organisms are presented in large colour pictures, with names and explanatory text. There are also many short videos.

The USB is dedicated to children, and they will enjoy the pictures, but an adult will need to be along to explain and interpret the words.
