Monitoring Northern Irelands' Cetaceans

1st Dec 2008 A free public talk will take place on Thursday 11 December on "Monitoring Northern Irelands' whales, dolphins and porpoises" at at the Coastal Zone, Portrush, Co Antrim.

The rich waters around Northern Ireland conceal a surprising diversity of cetaceans. With most of their lives spent underwater, monitoring and protecting these highly mobile marine mammals presents significant challenges for marine conservationists.

Despite these difficulties with adequate training it is possible for anyone to observ cetaceans from the coast and to contribute to our knowledge of these poorly understood species.

Monitoring Northern Irelands' whales, dolphins and porpoises by Gary Burrows Coastal and Marine Communication Officer with the Northern Ireland Environment Agency at the Coastal Zone Centre, Portrush, Co Antrim at 7:30pm.
