Organisers of 'Capturing Our Coast', funded through the Heritage Lottery Fund, say the new project is designed to find out more about the species that live on our shores and how we can protect them.

Data will be collected from the coastline in Pembrokeshire, right round to Somerset and down to north Devon.

The data we collect will fill key knowledge gaps such as geographical species distributions, movement of warm water species , and occurrences of invasive non-native species.
