In the summer of 2019, we ran a free marine biology programme for families in parts of Falmouth. We visited a new site every week and our families conducted biodiversity surveys to find out how our local marine wildlife changes across these sites.
Families with children of all ages took part and joined our staff and volunteers at six fantastic events.
We made 190 records of marine species
A total of 49 different species were found across all the sites
Some species were found a lot, such as:
And many species were only found once, such as:
We found big differences in the diversity of the wildlife at the sites with Pendower beach standing out in terms of the number of species discovered.
