ALL IRELAND SURVEY (AUTUMN 2023)
The All Ireland Survey takes place from September 15th to October 15th.
The survey is supported by the Marine Environment Section of the Department of the Housing, Local Government and Heritage.
We would be delighted if you could join us in this annual citizen science shore survey, whether experienced surveyor or total new comer.
It’s interesting, fun, energising and sometimes challenging and contributes enormously to our knowledge of the coastal rim. With climate change, new policies and laws this is a crucial time to have up to date information and thousands of eyes on the shore.
