Welcome to our Explore Your Shore! Seashore Splash! for Heritage Week 2022.

From 13th to the 21st August we are asking YOU to photograph and record as many marine species as you can on your local shore. How many marine species can you record in 30 minutes? How many can you record in one week?

Upload your Seashore Splash! records using our THIS FORM!

Track our Seashore Splash! progress during Heritage Week via the National Biodiversity Data Centre’s Twitter account and our Explore Your Shore! Facebook account. Also check this page daily to see how we are progressing, see the total records recorded, the total species recorded, and find out which coastal county is leading the way in terms of marine biodiversity recording.

And there’s a prize!! – two lucky recorders who submit records for our Seashore Splash! will win a copy of our identification swatch on Ireland’s Marine Bivalve Shells which is also available from the National Biodiversity Data Centre online shop NOW!
