Shoal of citizen scientists needed for Shoresearch

The Wildlife Trusts call for help charting marine life.

The Wildlife Trusts are launching a new version of their popular citizen science project – Shoresearch – and are calling on everyone to get involved in monitoring marine life on UK shores. The data collected through this national effort will help experts monitor our fragile sea life and better understand the effects of pollution, climate change and invasive alien species.

Previous Shoresearch surveys have varied in methodology around the UK. Now, for the first time, the same data collection method will be applied around the UK which will ensure that species records can be compared and change can be monitored. Anyone can get involved by attending a free Shoresearch event hosted by a coastal Wildlife Trust. People will be trained to identify and record intertidal plants and animals and their habitats.
