The Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre <http://www.cbmwc.org/>  (CBMWC)
based in New Quay, west Wales, UK is pleased to announce that our first
ShoreFin report
<http://www.cbmwc.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/ShoreFin_2014LR.pdf>  is
now available to download from our website


Initiated in 2014, ShoreFin <http://www.cbmwc.org/shore-fin-project/>  is
CBMWC's dedicated land-based bottlenose dolphin photo-identification
(photo-ID) project conducted in New Quay, west Wales, UK, whose aim is to
build up an understanding of bottlenose dolphin site usage within the New
Quay bay area, to find out which individuals visit the bay and to find out
more about the ecology and life history of these animals.


This field season our primary aim was to develop our methodology for
establishing this as an ongoing research project. By documenting the
individual animals that visit the New Quay bay area we aim to acquire a
greater understanding of the bottlenose dolphin population residing in
Cardigan Bay. We anticipate that the data we collected in 2014 will
contribute towards answering further questions regarding bottlenose dolphin
site usage,  behaviours and provide additional information on the range of
the local population as well as the potential effects of human activities on
their behaviour.

With best wishes from the CBMWC team.
