Monitoring Nature in the Oceans – a Blueprint for Irish Dive Clubs

Events, News, Timetable & Speakers

The photo of the lobster was taken in the seagrass bed that will be the subject of the talk. Tim will outline some of the plans that Cork SAC have for monitoring the seagrass beds at his club base, in Oysterhaven.  The objective is to establish baseline data against which changes in the health of the seagrass habitat can be measured in the future.
