A huge number of wildlife enthusiasts come to the Oban and Lorne area every year enticed by the rich variety of marine life which includes whales, dolphins, seals, basking sharks, otters, sea eagles and a myriad of flora and fauna.
This year the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) based at Dunstaffnage on the outskirts of Oban are calling out to ‘citizen scientists’ to help them in assessing the damage caused by winter storms on the coastal ecosystem.
The 2015/16 winter has seen some severe weather on Scotland’s west coast and it has taken its toll on many plants and animals that live along the coastlines.
SAMS are offering to train enthusiastic volunteers how to monitor and sample the coastlines up and down the Firth of Lorne as part of the Capturing Our Coast (CoCoast) initiative.
So if you are interested in protecting our precious coastal wildlife habitats and are willing to collect data on wading birds, shellfish and crustacea that will help create a clearer understanding of climate change and shape marine conservation policy you can register your interest on the CoCoast website by signing up to become a CoCoast Citizen Scientist.
