Online Observer course

February 7 @ 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM


The first step in any budding recorders journey on the road to the fame and respect of your peers that the Seasearch Surveyor moniker brings. This is a short course aimed at giving divers new to the project and new to marine recording a basic grounding. At the end of the course you should be able to complete the Seasearch Observation Form and take part in Seasearch dives either on your own, with your club or on dives organised by Seasearch partners.

The Observation form is a relatively simple form once you’re familiar with it and can be filled out on any dive with practice. Records gathered at Observer level are particularly valuable in Ireland due to the gaps in the distribution records of even extremely common species and recording new species can bring an added zest to your diving experience.

The course will be held over several nights with videos of each session available to review throughout the course to allow you to learn at your own pace.
