The Scottish Marine Animal Stranding Scheme’s (SMASS) brand new app Beach Track has officially launched. Download it now!
Beach Track enables users to contribute to one of the world’s largest and most extensive datasets on marine strandings and beach health. Through the app users can submit information on their coastal walks, any stranded marine animals they encounter, and rate the cleanliness of each coastal stretch including levels of litter, plastic waste and pollution. These reports will help us to build a ‘health map’ of Scotland's coastline, fill in knowledge gaps, direct beach cleans, and improve our understanding of the health of our waters and the threats facing marine animals. This in turn will help all of us to better protect our seas.
