Explore Your Shore! is looking for your stories and research of Ireland’s past marine biodiversity

Shifting baselines are one of the greatest challenges facing marine conservation. Each new generation accepts their natural world as ‘normal’ without the perspective of historical loss to guide their world view.

An Ebbing Tide…’ is a project for National Heritage Week 2020 and is asking people across Ireland to research or recount the past biodiversity of their local coastline and submit their stories, research and photographs to us so that we can build up a picture of local marine biodiversity in times past.

The winning entry will receive €200 and the runner up will recieve €100. We will also have spot prizes of one of our fantastic new identification swatches of Irish Bivalve Shells. You have until 12PM on Monday 3rd August to submit your story.
