New Sealife Survey Recording Site Launched

Welcome to the new Sealife Survey website from the Marine Biological Association of the UK. We have made several changes to our marine wildlife recording scheme which will hopefully make it easier for you to submit sightings and keep track of the sightings that you send us. Once you register for an account, you'll be able to use the "Record a Sighting" form to quickly submit one or more sightings, including any photographs. You'll then be able to browse a searchable log of your sightings and a gallery of the photographs that you've submitted.

Even more excitingly, we've joined up with the Biological Records Centre's iRecord scheme to ensure that your records are stored in a nationally standardised format, are instantly available for expert verification and will be combined with data from many other wildlife recording schemes to build a joined-up picture of the UK's biodiversity. You can be sure that when you submit a sighting to the Sealife Survey, you're part of a joined-up community that makes active use of your information.

However, because we've moved to a completely new data warehouse, you'll need to register for a new account, even if you had a login for our previous MBA recording site. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause you, but we hope you'll find this site to be an improved experience and will make the little extra effort needed to re-register worthwhile.
