Marine strandings

Dead marine megafauna strandings

On behalf of DEFA, MWT attend dead marine megafauna strandings, such as dolphins, basking sharks and seals. The aim of the programme is to get a better understanding of our local species movement and abundance,  and potential causes of death. The data feeds into a wider national database co-ordinated by CSIP (Cetacean Strandings Investigation Programme) and also into International Conventions too.

If you would be interested in getting involved please contact MWT. Training is free and everyone is welcome to join.
