Join the Port Phillip Baykeeper Neil Blake in this research and conservation activity and help safeguard our coastline’s precious ecosystems.


Help us monitor sand surface levels and map coastal vegetation cover, noting the specific elevations above sea level that different species inhabit around Seaford Beach. This information will inform future planting strategies responding to rising sea levels.


We’ll also dive into a world where every shell tells a story, and the beach is your laboratory! Join us for an extraordinary exploration and celebration of marine wonders and the thrilling art of shell observation. You will collect shells on the beach, identify them, record their characteristics and learn about the important role of molluscs (shellfish) in the Bay ecosystem. The data collected will be used to record long-term changes in population, species diversity, climate change and water quality.


The meeting place for this activity will be sent to you upon registering for this event.


We hope to see you at our next Beachkeepers Citizen Science session soon!


Please remember to wear appropriate clothing for the all weather conditions and to bring a hat, sunscreen, and a reusable water bottle.


We would like to acknowledge the project support provided by the Victorian Government through the Port Phillip Bay Fund.
