This course is in conjunction with the National Biodiversity Data Centre (NBDC) and is aimed at anyone fortunate enough to occasionally observe whales, dolphins or basking sharks, or indeed anyone who hasn’t to date, but would like to. All we ask is that you have a curiosity for our marine megafauna and a willingness to learn more about marine conservation.  During this one day workshop you will learn about cetacean biology, ecology, current IWDG research and our recording schemes. We may not be able to take you out to show you a whale, we will however bring “the whale” to you, during this relaxed and engaging series of presentations. No particular academic or field experience is required.
