Lots of animals are changing the time of year that they breed in response to warmer or cooler waters. We are interested in how this varies around the UK. We have put together an activity pack that will help you spot a numbers of species and their signs of reproduction.
This activity can be done on any rocky shore.
You can carry out this activity any time throughout the year and do it as many times as you like
Print the activity pack in the resources section below, take it out on the shore and get searching for the species listed in this pack. If you want to share your findings, once home, upload any photos and transfer the data you’ve recorded to our website: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/beachbabies. You can also get the activity packs by contacting your local hub.
An easy task to complete whilst out walking, and can be done with the family and on any suitable day. The information you collect will help us to understand what time of year different species reproduce and if this varies across different locations. We will also share your findings with other interested organisations such as the Shark Trust and The Sea Change project.
