Guidelines for volunteers for keeping safe during ShoreUPDATE surveys

Whether you are alone, or in a group, there are particular dangers to be aware of when working at the coast. Your safety during ShoreUPDATE surveys is our main concern, so it’s really important that you follow the guidance below.
