Your sightings are helping make a difference to our ocean. We use scientific data, like this, to campaign for real change in the way we manage and protect our seas.

Your contributions make a difference

People from all over the country have been contributing to scientific research by telling us what they spotted on their trip to the coast.

A huge thank you to all of you who report your sightings. By telling us what you spotted, we are able to discover more about the health of our oceans.
