Unusual marine life found around the coast of Cornwall

Shore search reveals stunning marine wildlife around the Cornish coast!

September 2012. Volunteers from Cornwall Wildlife Trust were recently treated to some interesting finds during a county-wide survey of life on some important rocky shores. The ‘shore search' survey was carried out at St Agnes, Polzeath, Looe, Fowey and Helford over four days, which saw some of the lowest spring tides of the year.

The survey uses a new method that allows data to be inputted into a national marine recorders database. Each year it will be repeated and the information gathered will provide a really useful tool for monitoring the health of Cornwall's shores. The Trust's Matt Slater and Lisa Rennocks carried out this important work with the help of dedicated volunteers from all five of Cornwall's Voluntary Marine Conservation Areas (VMCAs).
