Seasearch is a national project for volunteer sports divers who have an interest in what they’re seeing under water, want to learn more and want to help protect the marine environment. The main aims are to map out the various types of seabed found in the near-shore zone around the whole of the British Isles and also to record what lives in each area, establishing the richest sites for marine life and identifying places where there are problems and that need protection.

Details of South and west wales Seasearch 2017 training courses and survey weekends will be posted here as soon as they are finalised.
