Coastal Observation & Seabird Survey Team (COASST)

The Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team (COASST) is a citizen science project housed at the University of Washington. COASST trains coastal residents in their communities. Post-training, participants pledge to conduct monthly surveys. At present, three basic types of data are collected: 1) beachcast birds, 2) marine debris, and 3) evidence of human use of the beach environment. From the COASST website, you can view the data in map, table and list forms.
