Join the CoCoast team
Make history and be part of the largest coastal citizen science project in the UK!
Capturing our Coast is looking for adult volunteers of all ages and backgrounds to get involved in cutting-edge marine science.
If you’re interested in being involved in scientific experiments, fascinated by starfish or just love being out on the beach, there are opportunities for everyone.
Contribute to conservation by understanding and recording species on your local shore. Meet and learn alongside like-minded people, and do as little or as much as you like. Take part in crab walks, search for invasive species or become barmy about barnacles!
Come along to a training day to learn more. No experience required, all training and equipment (and lunch) will be provided. Just bring enthusiasm and a pair of wellies.
Training days are organised across the country - select the option for SAMS (Scottish Association for Marine Science) as your hub to find out more about dates across Scotland.
There are workshops taking place at the Scottish Seabird Centre on 14 and 16 April, and 29, 30 and 31 May.
The Seabird Centre is delighted to be working with SAMS on this exciting citizen science project.
