Understanding the seabed is crucial for informing conservation measures such as Marine Protected Areas. Dive into the 'Seasearch' project, where divers and snorkelers contribute findings to map the UK's near-shore zone. With free training, you can upload your valuable data to a database and become a part of the conservation effort today.

WHAT

Help map the sea bed found in the near-shore zone around the whole of the Britain and Ireland, documenting the species encountered on the dives to build up a database of where marine life is found.

HOW

Seasearch dives are organised by Seasearch local coordinators and a number of participating organisations.

GOOD TO KNOW

Minimum qualifications are BSAC/ScotSAC Sports Diver, PADI Advanced Open Water Diver, SAA Club Diver or CMAS 2 Star equivalent. You need to have done at least 20 dives of which 10 should have been in temperate sea water.

I've been diving for a while and it's really nice to see all the marine life we have in the UK because most people don't get that opportunity. We really privileged to be able to go out and see some of the really spectacular marine life we have here in the UK!
