Help safeguard your coastline.

Our amazing volunteer Coastal Wardens have been collecting water quality data for almost a year now - but we need your help!  We want to monitor as much of the 350 miles of Essex coastline as possible to identify potential leakages and excessive inputs of nutrients into our already vulnerable coastal habitats. 

We are therefore excited to announce our 2018 water quality training sessions:

These sessions will provide you with training and the opportunity to practice with the equipment before you use it in the field (spaces are limited, so don’t miss out!).  We ask that Coastal Wardens submit readings on a monthly basis so we can build up a good picture of trends throughout the year. 

Interested? Click on the links above for extra information and get in touch with the Coastal Wardens Team by emailing and let us know where you may be able to monitor.

Coastal Wardens is part of Essex Wildlife Trust’s Living Seas project.  More opportunities to get involved with coastal activities will be advertised shortly – watch this space!
