Whale Watch, Loop Head, Co Clare, Sun 28th May

28th May 2017

To celebrate Ireland's National Biodiversity Week May 19-28th, the IWDG is hosting a series of talks and guided land-based whale watches. 

This West Clare event is open to anyone with an interest in our marine megafauna. Find out about Irish whales and dolphins and learn about the field-craft behind whale watching and how best to identify the different species that can be seen off Clare. There will also be a range of whale artefacts and discussion on whale and dolphin biology, ecology and IWDG’s ongoing research on Irish whales and dolphins.

Limited optics will be provided on the day. Please wear suitable walking shoes and bring a light rain jacket, sunglasses, sunscreen and water. The event is free and all are welcome. We look forward to meeting you there.
