Talk & Meeting – Cornwall’s Marine Life & The Role of Citizen Scientists, by Matt Slater, Cornwall Wildlife Trust
October 17 @ 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm
Matt Slater is the Seasearch Coordinator for Cornwall, a project for volunteer divers who want to learn more and help protect the marine environment. He also runs the Shoresearch Cornwall volunteer programme recording intertidal species and habitats.
An enthusiast and the ‘go-to person’ for all aspects of marine biology in Cornwall, Matt was recently awarded the 2022 National Biodiversity Network Award for Wildlife Recording (Marine). “I am passionate about recording and I love how every dive, snorkel or rock pooling session still yields animals and seaweeds that I haven’t seen before!”
We’re delighted to have Matt in Looe to inspire us with his work, and shed light on how we can get involved! The talk will be followed by our monthly meeting to which all are welcome.
