Citizen scientists accompany EcoCentre experts on beach shoreline shell surveys to collect shells and record the distribution, variety and abundance of bivalves and gastropods. Measurements are taken, abundance is estimated, species are identified or described and photographed for the record. Monitoring shells over a long time may give us information about how the populations are tracking, and the effects of climate change on their populations.
