Each year we invite members of the public to take part in our annual citizen science event – National Whale and Dolphin Watch. Watches and surveys will be taking place across the country to create a ‘snapshot’ view of what can be seen in our UK coastal waters. The data collected during this event will enable us to develop an idea of the distribution of whales, dolphins and porpoises around the UK. This event is a great opportunity for everyone to become involved in the research which goes into understanding and protecting these magnificent creatures.
Provisionally National Whale and Dolphin Watch 2024 will take place from 26th July to 4th August. More information will come nearer the time! To learn more about the event through the promotion video and FAQs below.
