Species package surveys:
Last updated: 26th October 2018
Number Registered 5,478
Number trained 2,862
Number of data points 275,661
Number of survey days 1,710
Number of transects/quadrats 2,772 / 22,411
The species packs were developed to potentially provide useful data for future policy work and some have already been used in local Biodiversity Action Plans. All data will be verified by CoCoast staff and made publically available on the National Biodiversity Network Atlas. We also intend to publish some of our findings in scientific journals. We have produced a project report which details some of the initial findings and updates from all regional hubs.
