Join Devon Wildlife Trust’s Wembury Marine Centre for a Shoresearch Survey at Wembury Beach!
Join Devon Wildlife Trust’s Wembury Marine Centre for a Shoresearch Survey at Wembury Beach. Please meet outside Wembury Marine Centre (PL9 0HP) just before 1:30pm.
Shoresearch is The Wildlife Trusts' national citizen science survey of the intertidal shore, the exciting world of extremes where the sea meets the land. 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. You will be trained to identify and record the marine life found on our local shores. The data collected by this project helps The Wildlife Trusts to monitor our fragile sea life and better understand the effects of pollution, climate change and invasive alien species. Shoresearch data has been key to designating many of our Marine Conservation Zones.
Please note, this event is aimed mainly at those with an interest in intertidal marine life identification and surveying. The event will involve walking over slippery rocks, so wellies/sturdy boots are essential and please dress for the weather.
Events are weather dependent so please check your emails close to the day in case of cancellation. Please note, National Trust car parking charges apply to non-members at Wembury Beach car park.
