Marine Monitoring by Wildlife Trusts along the South Coast of England

Creator : Peter Tinsley
Date : 05/03/2015

Six Wildlife Trusts are established along the south coast of England, from Cornwall to Kent, all created between the late 1950s/early 1960s by concerned local people in response to a growing realisation that wildlife and the countryside were under threat. Each of them now has dedicated marine conservation staff and runs a "Living Seas" programme aimed at reversing the decline in marine wildlife. As well as campaigning for effective protection for marine species and habitats, the Trusts' staff and volunteers carry out a number of marine survey and monitoring projects, centered around two programs: Seasearch and Shoresearch.


In addition to Shoresearch and Seasearch, each of the Trusts involved in PANACHE is or has been involved in a number of other marine survey or monitoring projects


The Wildlife Trusts have successfully mobilised "citizen scientists" to collect information on the presence and extent of marine species and habitats and to identify and provide supporting evidence for important marine wildlife areas to inform the MPA site selection process.
