Can you help? We are looking to collect information on how people use Plymouth Sound and Tamar Estuaries. Please take part in the survey:
The Marine Biological Association is currently undertaking research for TECF (Tamar Estuaries Consultative Forum) through Plymouth City Council, into how these waters are used for recreation. The results will help inform the management of these complex waters, so that the nature conservation interests are maintained and recreational activities can continue sustainably into the future.
As part of the research MBA have devised this questionnaire to collect information about the sport and leisure activities visitors participate in when they visit the Plymouth Sound and Estuaries area.
It should take no more than 5 minutes to fill in, and as a thank-you, there is the chance to win some prizes (include £50 of vouchers, an annual membership of the Marine Biological Association of the UK and a family ticket to the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth) through a draw. All data will be held by Plymouth City Council and used for TECF work only in accordance with the Data Protection Act. Data will not be passed onto third parties.

Request for dead seabirds. As part of a project on comparative physiology and plastic pollution, I am looking to obtain specimens of recently dead seabirds (specimens that have undergone severe decay are not appropriate for our proposed study). Please could anyone finding a dead bird collect, place it in a plastic bag, store frozen and then contact me on email@example.com. I will endeavour to collect birds ASAP, as long as this is within Cornwall. Very many thanks, Dr Steve Votier.
(Please do not put yourselves in any unnecessary danger to do this. If in doubt do not attempt to retrieve the specimens. Eds)
