Jellyfish ID Quiz

By taking part in the Marine Conservation Society’s Jellyfish ID Quiz, participants can help the charity improve its sighting guide. The Jellyfish Survey, which has been running since 2003, has helped identify jellyfish hotspots around the UK. By improving the guide, the charity hopes for even more data in the future.
