Kelp Recording Scheme

We have developed a bespoke recording scheme for Sussex Kelp, which allows anyone and everyone to contribute to the restoration efforts. Whether you’re an occasional beach walker or an avid scuba diver, you can record what you’ve seen and play your part in the Sussex Kelp Restoration Project.

Our bespoke recording system is built using EpiCollect and allows users to tell us where they have (or indeed, have not!) seen Kelp.

The system is designed to be accessible to all, even if you are not totally confident in your kelp identification skills. The flexible form allows us to give as much or little information as you’re able, including photos, environmental factors, and your confidence in what you saw.

In order to use the system, you must first register for an account. Once our Living Seas team have added you to the system, you will be notified via email with a step-by-step guide on how to enter your data.

Happy recording!

Sarah Ward (Living Seas Officer, Sussex Wildlife Trust) and Ruth Eastwood (Conservation Biologist ) show us how getting involved with recording Kelp in Sussex as a citizen scientist.
