Shoresearch Seaham

National citizen science survey of intertidal habitats. Help us explore the shore and record the species found there.

Join our team of local volunteers to carry out a seashore survey, as part of a national citizen science project called ‘Shoresearch’, which is being carried out by Wildlife Trusts across the UK.

Don’t worry if you haven’t done a survey before, you will work in a small group with people who have surveyed with us before.  Both complete beginners and people already trained in the Shoresearch methods are very welcome.

Durham Wildlife Trust will provide guidance, refreshments, all the sampling kit, survey sheets and identification guides. 

Booking is essential! 

Please bring adequate and waterproof clothes appropriate to the weather. We will be out for up to three hours and conditions can change and be different out on the shore than inland. We will break for refreshments during the survey., and there are cafes and loos nearby.

The shore is slippery in places, and we will be walking through shallow pools so wellington boots are strongly advised. This beach is not suitable for people with limited mobility.

This event is suitable for people aged over 16, anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
