Do you enjoy walking on the beach? Are you interested in learning more about the marine natural resources in your area? Want to play an active role in marine conservation? Become a COASST participant! 

The COASST program consists of a Beached Bird module and a Marine Debris module, each with separate trainings and materials. Surveys for each module are conducted separately, and COASST will provide you with all the supplies needed to get started with surveys. Partners are encouraged! Working in a team is especially important on large outer coast beaches where the search and walk area is large and deposition of both birds and debris is greater.
