Iain Dixon will be giving a talk on:

“35 years of Seasearch – building on volunteer data into the future”

Abstract: Iain and Charlotte Bolton will present a brief historical context of how the Seasearch programme has utilised the power of volunteer data collection for conservation over the past 35+ years before presenting an update on future developments. There will be an emphasis on making the data accessible and usable, with a distinctly Scottish flavour to the examples!

Iain Dixon is Seasearch Scotland Coordinator, Marine Conservation Society. Seasearch is a partnership programme for volunteer divers, snorkellers and anyone who loves the sea, wants to find out more and contribute to its protection through sending in their sightings from across the British Isles.
