The National Whale and Dolphin Watch is a unique opportunity for anyone in the UK to get involved in a nation-wide data collection event. Researcher, boat operator, wildlife enthusiast or citizen scientist, we urge everyone to get involved!
Running from Saturday 27th July – Sunday 4th August, this event aims to get a “snap-shot” of marine life in British and Irish waters, with special focus on whales, dolphins and porpoises.
We will be sending an observer pack, including all the sighting forms and instructions for use, to every registered event.
The event is in its 18th year, and with over 1600 sightings recorded in 2018, we hope for just as many this year!
To get involved, all you need to do is get in touch with us at nwdw@Seawatchfoundation.org.uk or calling 01545 561227. We’re happy to help you plan your watch and will send an observer pack your way. Then you’re good to go! Fingers crossed for good weather and lots of sightings!
