Capturing our Coast Training - Marine Biological Association UK
Capturing our Coast (CoCoast) is a national citizen science initiative aiming to survey rocky coastlines around the UK.
This training evening includes an introduction to the Capturing Our Coast staff, the aims of project, coastal ecology and the fascinating species on our shores. We will also discuss the variety of ways you can contribute to the project.
After this training session, you will need to come along to one of our many events on the rocky shore to collect your equipment. Here you will put the survey protocol into practice and begin collecting data. We will also cover lots of species identification – which is always fun! We have scheduled a field event soon after this training session but don’t worry if you can’t make that one, just come along to any other of our events in the future.
After you have completed both a classroom session and a shore session, you would have already collected your first data and therefore will have become a Capturing Our Coast Citizen Scientist!
Volunteers participating in Capturing Our Coast need to be 18 years of age or older due to safety reasons.
