Inside you will find practical information about these two "citizen science" protocols that enable community groups like yours to collect scientifically defensible information about the intertidal and sub-tidal habitats and their biota in British Columbia.
After a few days of training in habitat mapping and species identification,
you can use these step-by-step protocols to routinely monitor your site
of interest or concern. The challenge will be distinguish natural changes
from human-induced ones over time. Nevertheless, the resulting data will
help us all to gain a better understanding of these dynamic ecosystems,
and to make wiser decisions about coastal development and marine conservation. Photo courtesy of racerocks.com
