National Whale and Dolphin Watch Week 2006, from Saturday August 12- Sunday August 20 2006, will be an opportunity for everyone to become involved in the research which goes into understanding these magnificent creatures.
Twenty eight species of whales and dolphins have been recorded off the British and Irish coast line. During National Whale and Dolphin Watch Week 2005, nine different species were reported.
To take part in National Whale and Dolphin Watch Week 2006 you will be able to go to one of the many Watch Sites that are being planned across the entire coast line of England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands.
NWDW week is supported by DEFRA.
