Cornwall Wildlife Trust, Cornwall’s leading local wildlife charity are holding their annual Rockpool Rummage and Seashore Survey on 15 June and are inviting people to come along.
The event, at Penzance's Battery Rocks from 1 - 3pm, is run by the trust’s marine team and will highlight the fascinating marine life that can be found in rockpools and on the seashore. Join marine experts for a guided rockpool ramble along the shore and come face to face with a variety of fascinating creatures! There is something for all ages, you can be involved with surveying the shore or just have a rummage and meet the creatures that call the rockpools their home.
“As well as having fun and learning loads we will be collecting information that will have real conservation value," explains Matt Slater, Marine Awareness Officer at Cornwall Wildlife Trust. "Interested members of the public will be welcome to help out and find out more about the shore survey!”
Events that are being organised on both sides of the English Channel as part of European Funded project called PANACHE (protected area networks across the channel ecosystem) which will engage with the public in areas with particular importance for marine conservation. The project aims to recruit Citizen Scientists to help improve our knowledge of marine environments as well as to show the public why our marine environment needs better protection.
Booking is essential, say the trust and under 18s must be accompanied by an adult. Those taking part should bring sensible shoes, warm clothes, waterproofs and sunscreen and water. No nets are allowed.
