A little more about us…

*Sea Watch Foundation*

The Sea Watch Foundation is a national marine environmental research 
charity that aims to achieve better conservation of whales and dolphins 
in the seas around Britain and Ireland, by involving the public in 
scientific monitoring of populations and the threats they face. It is 
the longest-running research charity in UK focusing upon cetaceans 
around the British Isles, and maintains a national sightings database, 
the largest in Europe. It works closely with all the UK statutory 
conservation agencies, and advises UK government, the UNEP Regional 
intergovernmental Conservation Agreement – ASCOBANS, the European 
Commission, as well as the major conservation charities and marine 
industries operating in the UK. At Sea Watch Wales, we are dedicated to 
raising awareness, knowledge and conservation of the marine wildlife of 
the region.

*Research in Cardigan Bay*

The purpose of our research here is to monitor the marine mammal 
populations inhabiting Cardigan Bay, so as to gain information to aid 
the conservation and long-term wellbeing of these animals and the local 
marine environment. This is achieved by conducting various projects 

·Estimating the abundance and distribution of bottlenose dolphins, 
harbour porpoises and grey seals within Cardigan Bay using distance 
sampling and opportunistic boat surveys

·Maintaining and updating a catalogue of photographically identified 
bottlenose dolphins in Wales in order to study their abundance, social 
structure, movements and life histories.
