A new era in science
Thanks to the connectivity of the internet, science is no longer just the realm of universities and bearded recluses living in tents on remote islands; it is in your living room. Citizen science harnesses the power of the group, it allows mass input. In the marine environment, we have multiple opportunities to add valuable research information and often simply by recording a few details from your own local patch.
The Natural History Museum (NHM), Cornwall Wildlife Trust (CWT), The Marine Biological Association (MBA) and many more need our help. The information they gather, not only produces a picture of our coast it also influences policy; it has been instrumental in the evidence required to establish Marine Conservation Zones (MCZ).
