Project Research – Wildlife Locations

Undertaking a project that encompasses 350 miles of coastline is a huge undertaking especially when the objective is to create a resolved body of work within 2 years. Such an undertaking reminds me of the quote “How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.” Unknown. The answer is to break the project into manageable chunks this is especially true for the wildlife element of the Essex Coastline. I have compiled a list of Essex Wildlife Trust locations that are on the coastline and plan to visit each of them and record them as individual walks.
