Sharklab Live: Easter Eggcase Hunts & Bioblitz
Join us from the 19th to 24th for a week of Citizen Science. Led by the Blue Seas Protection Shark Lab Team you will be surveying various locations across Sandown Bay. We need Citizen Scientists to survey our coastline, and welcome islanders and holiday visitors as we show you how to hunt, identify and record your findings so that they can be added to live scientific databases. Your Citizen Scientist contributions will significantly aid the Shark Lab in monitoring and assessing the health of Sandown Bay which is known as the jewel of Hampshire’, and a conservation zone.
All participants must register to take part in the weekly survey. You can join in for as little or as long as you want including part every day! Just let us know that you’re coming along so that we can ensure we bring enough equipment to cater for you or to co weather.
The surveys conducted on Sat 23rd and Sun 24th April 2022, are only suitable for adults and young adults, as we will be aiming to survey 2 headland areas. Please register your interest by contacting the Shark Lab, with your preferred Survey Date, Contact Name + Tel.no + Number of children under 18y
