Santa Claws Lobster Sweater (a collaboration with Padstow Lobster Hatchery)
This Christmas we have teamed up with The National Lobster Hatchery in Padstow on an exciting conservation scheme "BUY ONE, SET ONE FREE". For every onesie you buy from us, we make a donation to the The National Lobster Hatchery to enable them to rear a baby lobster and release it back into the Cornish coast.
This marine conservation project is based right on our doorstep in Padstow, Cornwall. With depleting supplies of lobster in various parts of the world, conservation of our lobster population is vital. The lobster hatchery has permission to catch female lobsters (Hens) that are carrying eggs, from the sea and to bring them into their special maternity ward to hatch all the eggs. Once the eggs are all hatched, the female lobster is safely released back into the sea and the baby lobsters are delicately reared until they're three months old and measuring 1cm long.
A Hen lobster can carry in the region of 20,000 eggs, but approximately only one will survive. With the help of the hatchery, this survival rate will increase to approximately a thousand!
