National Whale & Dolphin Watch Week 29th July to 6th August
National Whale and Dolphin Watch Week, 29th July to 6th August is organized by the Sea Watch Foundation when members of the public can make a valuable contribution to sea mammal conservation by watching for sea mammals in their area. In its 16th year, National Whale and Dolphin Watch provides a valuable annual snapshot of sea mammal activity across the 35 UK regional groups and is part of the foundations ongoing observation programme to survey and protect UK dolphins and whales. http://www.seawatchfoundation.org.uk/
While Sussex is not a region for high cetacean activity it does however provide an important part the National picture regarding the movements of species such as bottlenose dolphin, common dolphin, harbour porpoise as well as other occasional species. I have coordinated the Sussex regional group since 1993 and you can find annual reports in Adastra for more information on Sussex sightings.
