Happy New Year

from all at Coastwatch

A very happy healthy successful 2014 to you all and a huge thank you for all your help in 2013. Your ideas, engagement and work for our last Coastwatch survey has yielded really interesting and useful results.

The first key findings were launched on December 2nd 2013 with primary school students on the Dublin coast and covered by RTE - watched by a surprising number of people - judging from the positive feedback we got. Then late survey form data was added and the full report is now taking shape with a group of Coastwatchers contributing.
