Bellerive Beach joins global community movement

Clarence residents can turn their everyday photos into valuable coastal data with a CoastSnap location at Bellerive Beach.

CoastSnap is a global citizen science project that captures changing coastlines. It relies on repeat photos submitted by citizens of the same location and helps track how the coast is changing over time.

At each monitoring point, such as at the western end of Bellerive Beach, a fixed position pole and camera cradle is set up so that the Clarence community can capture images of Bellerive Beach to share via social media or email.

These images are records which then provide real time data that helps scientists better understand our beaches and forecast coastline changes in the coming decades.
