Capturing our Coast

We were really pleased to welcome Dr Hannah Grist from the Marine Sciences Institute in Oban to deliver Capturing our Coast training in East Haven yesterday. Fifteen citizen scientists enjoyed a great day learning how to lay out a transect and use a quadrat to record marine species. It's not quite as easy as it sounds as it the project employs a very specific methodology. However, we fully utilised Hannah's skills and knowledge throughout the day and learned so much about different seaweed and animal species. It was really fun day and of course we alle njoyed a lovely lucnh together. Our next plan is to organise a few days throughout the year when we can go out in small groups to carry out the surveys and upload data to this important UK wide project.
