Capturing our Coast


We believe that the responsibility for protecting our seas and wonderful marine biodiversity belongs to all of us. Since January 2016, Capturing Our Coast (CoCoast) has trained almost 3,000 citizen scientists to carry out transect surveys of marine species on UK rocky shores. This army of volunteers continues to collect data across UK coasts, contributing to gaps in our knowledge of marine biodiversity and providing a baseline to explore responses to environmental change. In addition, CoCoast also offered a number of other activities that anyone can take part in to contribute to understanding and conservation of the UK coast. Many of these are continuing so you can still get involved
