Join us for a survey of the marine life and help add to national records of species and changes

Service Description

We need volunteers to join us on our Shoresearch events around the Selsey area. We are currently monitoring three sites, each has a different feel when exploring. What is Shoresearch? It is a volunteer programme that allows you to take part to help our coasts. The Sussex Shoresearch volunteer program is coordinated by the Sussex Wildlife Trust and forms part of a national programme of Shoresearch recording led by The Wildlife Trusts. Mulberry Marine Experiences are working in partnership with Sussex Wildlife Trust to offer more opportunities for you to take part. The aim is to build a baseline of data on the wildlife that is living in the intertidal ecosystem around Sussex, that can be used to improve understanding and promote conservation. What Happens? The events are timed to coincide with low water so we can conduct a walk over survey recording the species that we find and the habitats where they are living. Each event will last for around 2-3 hours and involve walking, wading and exploration of rocky areas. Who is it suitable for? Suitable for anyone over 12, but all children under 15 must be accompanied by an adult. We do offer some junior events for younger children that want to be included, they will be advertised a Junior Shoresearch. Do I need to be an expert in Marine Life? No. All you need is eagle eyes and a sense of adventure. Cameras are welcome and we are happy to arrange events for school groups, and educational facilities All shoresearch events are provide free of charge and run by first aid trained members of the Mulberry team.
