Whale and Dolphin ID Course at Mourne Mountains

28th Jul 2012

After a very successful Daubenton's bat survey workshop last night we're hosting another training workshop on Whale and Dolphin ID, which will help you differentiate between your porpoise and dolphins, fin and humpback
whale. We have a world of discovery under the sea and if we can help record what we see when we spot a marine mammal it can really help gain a better understanding of these magnificent creatures.

The workshop will be delivered by Ian Enlander and Emma Cunningham and held on Thursday 2 August, from 10am - 5pm at Silent Valley Gatelodge. It will start with a three hour theory session before an afternoon field trip to
spot our local marine mammals.

The workshop has limited numbers, so please express your interest asap. No previous knowledge is necessary, but if you have access to a good pair of binoculars or a scope then it would be useful to bring it along.
