Sally Tapp: Secret life of Albert Dock

Greater Pipefish, full - Syngnathus acus (Sally Tapp)

As part of the Heritage on the Dock Festival 2016 we ran a Wildlife Discovery and Talk at Albert Dock in Liverpool, Merseyside. At the height of its power, Albert Dock was home to many international innovations, however, these were short-lived and it thrived for a mere half a century before its days were numbered.  The story of its regeneration and the subsequent colonisation by marine wildlife is both fascinating and a great illustration of the power of nature.
