Welcome to the Explore Your Shore! Seashore Splash! for Biodiversity Week 2021.

From 15th to the 23rd May we are asking you to record and photgraph as many marine species as possible and upload them for the National Biodiversity Data Centre’s Explore Your Shore! citizen science survey, funded by the EPA.

We will be sending out regular reminders via the National Biodiversity Data Centre Twitter account and our Explore Your Shore! Facebook account. You can check into this site daily to see how things are progressing in terms of total records recorded, total species recorded and which coastal county is leading the way in terms of marine biodiversity recording.

Don’t forget to share your Seashore Splash action pics on the Explore Your Shore! Facebook page.

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

You can upload your records for our Seashore Splash! here
