It's a great way to explore your local coast, learn more about the wildlife found there and add to our understanding of this important habitat.

The data collected in the intertidal surveys helps experts to monitor our fragile sea life and better understand the effects of pollution, climate change and invasive alien species.

Anyone can be an Intertidal Volunteer: all you need is enthusiasm! If you enjoy spending time by the coast regularly, why not take time to join a survey and record what you see – and what you don’t?!

We will provide full training on how to undertake shore surveys for all volunteers. There will be many different ways to get involved, and there will be opportunities to input your own ideas of what we should focus on.
