Shoresearch - Saltdean Thursday, 18th August 2016 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM

Shoresearch is a volunteer scheme to identify and record animals, plants and habitats along our shoreline. The aim of the scheme is to build a baseline of data on intertidal wildlife around Sussex, to help promote its conservation.

Anyone is welcome and you do not need any prior knowledge. Sturdy footwear is required and children must be accompanied by a guardian.

Saltdean beach, at the base of the chalk cliffs, contains a chalk platform that is covered at high tide, a feature common to this stretch of coast. This allows a range of algae and other species to thrive on the rocky substrate. This site is within the Beachy Head West Marine Conservation Zone.

Meeting Point: Car park on Saltdean Park Road, next to Saltdean Lido.
