We would like to welcome a new recruit to the Sea Watch team! Wildlife enthusiast, Adrian Clarke, has recently been appointed as Regional Coordinator for Cumbria. Passionate about all marine life, Adrian aims to increase public involvement in cetacean conservation as much as possible.
My interest in marine mammals started when I was a youngster sea fishing for shark with my father. I was fascinated by the diversity of marine mammals around the Scottish coastline. Later, I took a great interest in wildlife rehabilitation and have followed various wildlife rescue and rehabilitation courses. I applied for the Regional Coordinator post as I feel its important to protect our marine mammals and educate the public the work accomplished by the Sea Watch Foundation and ways in which they can become involved in cetacean conservation.
Look out for future events in Cumbria and if you are keen to get started or would like to report a cetacean sighting in Cumbria, contact Adrian at email@example.com.
This is fantastic news for the sightings network as we now only have a single region without a Regional Coordinator – South-West Scotland. If you are interested in getting involved in Sea Watch’s work and are based in this region, why not contact Sea Watch Sightings Officer, Danielle at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on the role?
