Oxford Uni Survey: does marine wildlife damage or protect Historic Maritime structures?

Researchers at the University of Oxford in collaboration with Historic England are conducting a survey to determine attitudes towards marine wildlife growing on historic maritime structures by those responsible for their management. The short survey should take 12 minutes to complete and can be accessed HERE, or at: https://oxford.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/managing-marine-wildlife-on-historic-maritime-structures

We are extremely interested in hearing from anyone directly or indirectly involved in the management, maintenance or repair of historic maritime infrastructure (harbours, ports, breakwaters etc.).

The results of the survey will be used to identify practical solutions towards the conservation of historic maritime infrastructure and marine biodiversity. Participants will have access to the outputs of this valuable research on the completion of the study.

Any information you provide will be completely anonymous and will remain confidential. Your participation is voluntary, and all questions are optional. If you have any questions please contact the primary researcher, Tim Baxter (timothy.baxter@ouce.ox.ac.uk), or Dr. Martin Coombes (martin.coombes@ouce.ox.ac.uk).
