This is a wonderful opportunity to learn how to survey our native oyster release sites, monitoring growth, survival rates and biodiversity-change. You can adopt a site and help us with our future oyster releases.
Must I live locally?
Yes, simply due to the fact that all the work is linked to tides and weather. Last minute cancellations and rescheduling is highly likely.
We need to monitor our growing number of oyster release sites to see how well we are doing. The data collected informs our future restoration efforts and helps advance the growing science of native oyster restoration UK-wide.
What do you need to know?
We will give you a day's training on how to survey on the beach at low spring tide and how to complete the data sheets.
What do I need to do?
Conduct a beach survey twice a year at low spring tide, and keep an eye on the area that you've adopted. You will be able to help us release juvenile oysters into the wild and take part in our other activities - talks, presentations, socials - and if you're really enjoying the marine science, there will be more opportunities in the future.
I am keen, what next?
