Big Shell Couting Day 2021 with online assistance, also in schools

Oostende (2021.03.05)  – On Sunday 14 March, the Big Shell Counting Day 2021 will take place again. As before, the organizers of this citizen science project are challenging citizens go to the beach and to collect, count and identify shells according to a fixed scientific method. New this year are the online helpdesk for the more-difficult-to-recognize species, and a shell counting week in the primary schools of coastal municipalities.
