Assistant Volunteer Coordinator 2016

Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre (CBMWC) is recruiting an Living Seas

The Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre is based in New Quay, west Wales,

marine environment through education and research. Using boat-based and
land-based surveys, photo-ID and acoustic studies we monitor bottlenose
dolphin, harbour porpoise and Atlantic grey seal populations in the Cardigan
Bay Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and wider Irish Sea. We also run a
busy visitor centre as well as an education and activity room which offers
marine educational and awareness raising activities for families, school and
groups. In April 2015 we became part of the Wildlife Trust of South and West
Wales (WTSWW) and will be delivering the trusts Living Seas programme.
