You don't need to be an expert to get involved! We need as many eyes as possible to help us with this whale, dolphin and porpoise survey! In collaboration with the Sea Watch Foundation, we will be doing a survey to help us develop an understanding of where whales, dolphins and porpoises hang out in our waters. 

There will be someone there who knows what they are doing with extra pairs of binoculars; if you would like to join us then all you need to do is show up!
