Take part in “The Shore Thing” 25 February 2015

Ulster Wildlife is looking for GCSE and A Level classes, community groups or workplace teams to take part in local marine conservation

 

UW

 

The Shore Thing is a unique citizen science project running throughout the UK and Ireland. It gives schools and volunteer groups the opportunity to help monitor the impact of rising sea temperatures on our rocky shore species. All of the information collected by volunteers will be made available online and will help to build a picture of the present state of UK rocky shores and measure change in the future.

The Shore Thing aims to:

• Create a national database of verified and validated intertidal species for the UK;

• Engage schools and volunteer groups through fieldwork in marine conservation and raise awareness of marine issues;

• Strengthen the links between education and marine research in the UK.

The project uses two survey types: a timed species search focussed on climate indicator and non–native species; and a transect survey using quadrats and abundance scales to record biodiversity.

Students and volunteers will learn about rocky shore ecology and develop skills in survey techniques and species identification. The Shore Thing can be used to teach many aspects of Biology, Geography, Environmental Studies and ICT. More information can be found in the Teachers’ Pack, along with classroom activities and background material.

We will be running sessions throughout March, April and May this year. If you would like to take part in the project, please register your interest by emailing rebecca.hunter@ulsterwildlife.org. We will endeavour to facilitate as many surveys as possible however priority will be given on a first come, first served basis. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to get in touch!
