Citizen Science Day

Your chance to take part in studies that will benefit the seas and oceans.

Service Description

What is a Citizen Science? It is when the public voluntarily helps conduct scientific research. The programmes are designed by scientists and contribute to the knowledge, and well being of our natural environment. At Mulberry Marine Experiences, taking part in these programmes help us to support the Marine Environment, local charities and groups that are working on specific projects to support the waters and inhabitants around the UK. Citizen Science Days will show you how you can turn every beach day into a positive way to help the seas and oceans, they are your chance to make a difference. Why come along? It might be your first time and you are not sure where to start, it could be to help a project you are already supporting further, a chance to find out more about the work that we carry out and meet a group of who people want to have fun whilst helping. We offer days monthly and each day will be made up of several elements including micro beach cleans (specific sites in areas of 100ms), shark and ray egg case recording, kelp recording, intertidal species surveys, and marine interactions including how to act around seals, reporting sightings of healthy and sick animals. There are opportunities for volunteers to take part in water if you want but this optional. For more information on taking part in the water check out our Seasearch Observer Days for snorkellers, freedivers and divers. Each Citizen Science Day will be run by Mulberry staff who are fully first aid trained. Full briefings and equipment will be provided (thank you to COVE Communities who sponsored our beach clean kits) for all land-based activities, if you are taking part in water equipment can be hired. These family friendly days are provided as free community programmes, but we do ask you to enroll below so we can plan staff accordingly. Would you like to volunteer to help us run these dates? Give us a call on 01243 601000. If you are a business looking to get your staff involved, we offer corporate days. Contact us to discuss our well being and environment offering for your employees. Please join us, we cannot do it without you.
