The National Biodiversity Data Centre is running a coastal survey for marine wildlife. This is a Citizen Science project funded by the Environmental Protection Agency and is a great way for the Public to get involved in biodiversity data collection on their local shore while contributing to a nationwide project that will update our knowledge of Irish coastal species distribution, while looking at these species as indicators of Climate Change and Water Quality.
