Sussex Wildlife Trust is working hard for nature at this challenging time but we can only do so with your support.

Shoresearch - Worthing Pipe (23/6/17) Friday, 23rd June 2017 3:30 PM - 6:00 PM

The focus of this survey is a disused Victorian sewage outflow pipe on Worthing’s shingle beach. The man-made structure has created an artificial habitat which is now covered in a wide variety of encrusting organisms. About 8km offshore from this site is the Kingmere MCZ.

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

  • A hand lens is useful, if you have one
  • Washing-up gloves are useful for poking about in rock-pools in cold weather!
