FEATURED WHALE & DOLPHIN WATCHING HOLIDAYS

 

ARTICLE: SEA WATCH FOUNDATION

The UK national whale and dolphin watch.

Orca whalesAn opportunity to get involved in whale, dolphin and porpoise research – the public is invited to take part in surveys around the UK as part of the annual 'National Whale and Dolphin Watch' set up by the Sea Watch Foundation (a registered marine environmental research charity who work to improve the conservation and protection of whales, dolphins and porpoises in British and Irish waters). The data collected will help develop a snapshot of dolphin, whale and porpoise distribution around the UK.

 

Regular observers and survey training courses
There are also opportunities to become a Sea Watch Regular Observer as well as taking a short course to learn about British cetaceans and how to survey for them. The courses will consist of illustrated lectures, video presentations, headland watches and boat surveys in the Cardigan Bay 'Special Area of Conservation', well-known for the presence and high sighting frequency of bottlenose dolphins, harbour porpoises and grey seals.
