    Each “round” should take no more than an hour, one way
    Carry a copy of your monitoring protocol
    Fill out a separate data sheet for EACH survey you conduct
    As you see them, mark activities on the map, using the provided activity codes.
    Only survey in one direction at a time
  • 29. MPA Watch General Instructions
    Only record beach activity on beaches; not on adjacent trails, roads or paths.
    When recording activities, only record the activity people are engaging in when you observe them. ((For example, if you see people hiking with binoculars, record them as hiking, not wildlife viewing.))
    Some surveys may have no activity. It still counts as a survey—fill out a data sheet, and mark no activity.
  • 30. MPA Watch General Instructions
    At the end of the day, fill out the survey compilation sheet. Each survey should be tallied in a separate column. SAVE your survey datasheet AND the compilation sheet
    Safety first! DO NOT compromise your safety in order to stick to monitoring protocol
