Dorset Wildlife Trust has been placing nest boxes' on the sea bed in Kimmeridge Bay to encourage cuttlefish to set up home.
Cuttlefish, which are relatives of squid and octopus, have been declining in recent years according to fishermen and divers. This is thought to be due to heavy fishing affecting them when they come inshore to breed.
