From reporting your wildlife and seaweed sightings to fun-filled family activities at the beach, there are lots of ways for you to get involved with our work.
We want to hear about the wildlife you spot at the coast and at sea, especially marine turtles and jellyfish in UK and Irish waters.
Big Microplastic Survey
Microplastics pose a big threat to marine ecosystems and human health. Alongside the Big Microplastic Survey, we're collecting vital data on microplastic pollution in the UK. You can get involved by heading to the beach and telling us about the microplastics you find there.
Big Seaweed Search
Discovering where and how seaweeds grow around the UK can tell us vital information about our climate.
Source to Sea Litter Quest
No matter where you live across the UK, you can help keep our seas clean. Most of the litter that ends up on our beaches or in the sea starts its journey in villages, towns and cities miles from the coast.
Dive in: A citizen science series
Citizen science is when people like you work alongside researchers to collect scientific data and contribute to research. Our series of online training sessions tell you everything you need to know about getting involved.
