These surveys not only helps to increase our overall knowledge and understanding of our local marine environment but also helps to identify and monitor changes that may affect the marine life e.g. climate change, invasive species and local developments.
The first survey of the season took place last night on Ryde Seafront, just to the left of the pier.
We had fantastic weather and lots of interested volunteers who identified many different species of marine life!
Four different species of Anemone were found, including this beautiful Snakelocks Anemone below:
