On the 9th June some Marine Biological Association members travelled to Totnes to take part in the Lower Sharpham Farm BioBlitz, organised by Ambios Ltd, a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to nature conservation and training.
This was a great opportunity for the MBA to share our enthusiasm for marine biology with the public, as well as supplying the BioBlitz species list with 13 species from the area covered! Some of the marine species found includes; the European eel (Anguilla Anguilla), the mud shrimp (Corophium volutator) and horned wrack (Fucus ceranoides). For more pictures from the event feel free to visit our Facebook page and Lower Sharpham Farm BioBlitz album.
Congratulations to the Lower Sharpham Farm BioBlitz organisers and volunteers for the great effort and next year we hope to bring more volunteers to cover even more ground.
