Are you interested in hearing more about Sea Watch and their research?
With the Covid-19 epidemic affecting us all, and the wide-scale restrictions to help curb it, our public activities have had to be suspended for the time being, although we are actively working remotely.
Here are some of the outreach events we had in New Quay last Summer. We hope to resume such activities just as soon as lockdown eases and we are allowed to.
Sea Watch’s primary office is located in New Quay, Wales and we have recently opened our new Education Centre & Dolphin Hub. We are open daily (subject to volunteer availability) and at weekends 10 AM – 4 PM.
Outreach in New Quay
Visits to New Quay can be arranged where you can meet our team who are researching bottlenose dolphins and other cetaceans in Cardigan Bay. Your visit can be tailored to your interests.
- The new Education Centre allows us more flexibility and resources in hosting large events in New Quay, where you can meet our research team on site.
- Thanks to the beautiful coastline, we also have New Quay pier right on our doorstep and are able to host activities outside weather allowing.
- Events generally take place May – October.
Children of New Quay Mural
Help us to grow our Children of New Quay mural. This artwork has a permanent home in our Dolphin Hub – but it’s not finished yet! The collage symbolises the ocean, with interweaving themes of plastic pollution and it’s impacts on a once healthy ecosystem. We welcome in families to craft artwork from recycled waste. You can even spot cetaceans right out the window as you craft – the Dolphin Hub overlooks the Bay.
You can also “rescue the dolphin” where we re-enact a cetacean stranding. This exciting activities educates the public on what to do if they find a real life dolphin or whale beached. All the family can get involved in following proper protocol!
Other common events include bake sales, movie nights, quiz nights, rock pool exploring, book readings, arts & crafts, treasure hunts.
We often organise beach and other litter clean ups! Check out our resident porpoise, Percy who is made from waste found in Welsh beaches:
