Members of the Beyond Greenspace team have collaborated with the RSPB to examine whether marine wildlife is an important component of the wellbeing benefits of visits to the coast.

The results of the study were published earlier this month in the journal Marine Policy. Our colleague Rebecca Jefferson from the RSPB has written a great blog post discussing the study. You can read the full post on the RSPB blogs, but she concludes:
