Cetacean & Seabird Identification Workshops

Biscay Dolphin Research Programme is delighted to announce that following on
from the success of our 2009 workshops, we will be running 7 Cetacean &
Seabird Identification Workshops on the P&O cruiseferry ‘Pride of Bilbao’ in
summer 2010.

Biscay Dolphin Research Programme (BDRP) has been conducting whale, dolphin
and seabird surveys of the English Channel and Bay of Biscay each month,
year-round continuously since 1995.  BDRP is an award-winning project within
the established charity Marinelife that aims to further the conservation of
whales, dolphins, seabirds and other marine life through scientific study
and educational activities. 

Because of the work we have undertaken, the English Channel and the Bay of
Biscay is now recognised as one of the most important areas in the world for
whales and dolphins!

Come and join some of the most experienced cetacean and seabird researchers
in the UK for a fully interactive workshop where you will learn all the
basic skills needed to observe and identify these fantastic animals at sea.

This workshop is ideal for anyone with a general interest in marine
wildlife, students studying Marine Biology or similar subjects, people who
want some firsthand experience of field work as well any prospective Marine
Mammal Observers (MMO’s).

3-6 June 2010
