Join us for National Whale and Dolphin Watch 2014!
Events running all around the UK on 26th July to 3rd August.
Members of the public are invited to take part in dolphin, whale and porpoise surveys around the UK as part of the 13th National Whale and Dolphin Watch. The data collected during the event 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 which goes into understanding and protecting these magnificent creatures.
