The Coalition is going into its third year as a participant in MPA (Marine Protection Area) Watch. MPA Watch is a community science project used to collect data that illustrate how humans are using coastal areas. MPA Watch depends on volunteers to collect data, and the Coalition is always looking for more people to get involved. No prior experience is necessary, training will be provided. If requested, volunteers will receive letters at the end of the year acknowledging their hours spent on the project. This year on Fishers Island, volunteers can survey by walking set routes or, if volunteers have personal boat access, they can survey from the water using the boat-based protocol.
You can stay up-to-date with the Coalition’s activities by visiting our website (fiseagrass.org), following us on Instagram (@fishers_island_seagrass) and looking for seagrass related posts on fishersisland.net.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like to volunteer, participate or just learn more about our activities. Emails can be sent to the FISM Project Coordinator, Connor Jones, at email@example.com.
