You are invited to take part in a dolphin, whale and porpoise survey for the 12th National Whale and Dolphin Watch. The data collected during this event, and others like it, will help in developing a snapshot of the distribution of dolphins, whales and porpoises around the UK.

This is an opportunity for everyone to become involved in the research that goes into understanding and protecting these magnificent creatures. There is no need to be an expert to get involved! We need as many eyes on the sea as possible.

This event is being run in collaboration with the Sea Watch Foundation. Feel free to turn up any time between 8.00am and 12.00pm. Bring binoculars if you have them. If you have a disability and would like to use our off-road wheelchair, please contact the nature reserve on 01229 471066.
