Ireland has 3,171 km of coastline and yet we have relatively few records of intertidal and coastal marine species. We lack a strong tradition of the public recording intertidal species. Explore Your Shore is a Citizen Science project funded by the Environmental Protection Agency focused on increasing our knowledge of the distribution of our intertidal species, exploring their potential as bio-indicators of water quality and climate change, and highlighting actions we can all take to tackle water pollution and climate change.

We are looking for volunteers like YOU, whether you are a surfer, angler, walker, shellfish farmer, diver, amateur naturalist or professional, to take some time to Explore Your Shore and help us record our intertidal species.
