Strandings Workshop, Sat 12th May

12th May 2018

The IWDG have been successful in winning the subsequent dolphin and porpoise post-mortem tender contracted by the Marine Institute and the National Parks and Wildlife Service. We would like to thank all members of the IWDG Strandings Network who submitted their strandings, making the previous tender a success and allowing us to continue this important work. 

We would like to invite members to attend an IWDG Strandings Network Workshop on Sat, 12th May 2018, which will be held at the IWDG offices at Merchant's Quay, Kilrush, Co. Clare.

The schedule for the day will be as follows:
