If you’ve not encountered a Bioblitz before, it’s an opportunity to document every living thing in a particular location. That means bringing together experts from many different fields, so when we heard that the National Trust were running a series of Bioblitz’s at their properties this year we decided to offer our help!Picture credit: www.bnhc.org.uk/bioblitz
Pop along and see Paul who’ll be watching at Souter Lighthouse on Sunday 19th June between 6am and 10am and then 2pm-6pm. Or you can head down between 10am and 2pm to watch with volunteers from ORCA. You don’t need to spend all day watching, just pop down whenever suits you, find out how to record watches for whales and dolphins and hopefully see some too!
Next on the list is Lundy Bay in North Cornwall, here you’ll be able to join our partners at Seaquest Southwest on Saturday 2nd July between 1pm and 5pm or our experienced Regional Coordinators, Chris and Sharron between 9:30am and 12:30pm on Sunday 3rd July. Here you can see the whole programme of events for Lundy Bay: Lundy Bay BioBlitz poster and timetableVolunteers from Seaquest Southwest help survey for whales and dolphins off the Cornish coast.
If you’re thinking of running a Bioblitz at a coastal location then please get in touch so we can find you a local marine mammal observer too!
