Today 27th December 2021 an overview of Coastwatch citizen scientist autumn shore survey results from 710 sites around Ireland are being launched by Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage Mr. Darragh O’ Brien T.D.
The minister had braved the winter weather on the Malahide shore a few days earlier for a first meeting with a small Coastwatch delegation in his own Malahide back yard.
‘The autumn shore survey high and low lights we would like you to launch are just a taster’, explained Michael Walsh, Coastwatch Fingal coordinator. ’Details of results will be presented in a series of virtual and live events in early 2022’. The next event is planned for World Wetlands Day 2.2.2022. It’s on seagrass findings and finders, the importance of seagrass internationally and follow up action proposals to protect, manage and restore this most valuable blue carbon habitat.
