"This informative book celebrates the rich legacy of knowledge on marine and coastal conservation while highlighting the need for increased attention and the role that people could play through citizen science. The breadth of subjects included is impressive and the lessons learnt have relevance to environments beyond marine and coastal. It is inspiring to note the value of citizen science for conservation and exciting to consider the future possibilities that could come from even wider engagement." - Helen Roy, Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, UK, and Secretary, Citizen Science Special Interest Group of the British Ecological Society
"This publication is a highly topical and much needed addition to this area of coastal and marine resource management. The book has been widely cited by both postgraduate and undergraduate students across a range of disciplines here at the University of Portsmouth. It has also been highly valuable in providing ideas for a recent grant bid and several journal paper submissions. I would highly recommend this book for range of audiences - students, academics and practitioners." - Jonathan Potts, Principal Lecturer and Course Director for MSc Coastal and Marine Resource Management, University of Portsmouth, UK
