Explore your Shores! is Ireland’s Marine Biodiversity Citizen Science Platform and is working to build our knowledge of the distribution of marine species around the Irish coast. The platform promotes its own surveys, primarily focused on intertidal species, and other Irish Marine Biodiversity Citizen Science surveys operated by project partners. Contributing to these surveys will help researchers to better understand where and when marine species occur around our coast, and how they are being affected by climate change, water quality and other human impacts.

Get involved and help monitor Ireland’s Marine Biodiversity.
