Marine Advocacy – cetaceans sightings and strandings (Devon Wildlife Trust)

During 2013/2014 DBRC will continue to deliver a baseline monitoring project which collates cetacean sightings from the public in Devon.  Without a county wide and well supported framework this will serve to ensure that a minimum level of information is gathered and can inform local and national decision making.  This is of particular importance considering the development of off-shore energy farms and the current consultation on recommended MCZ.

DBRC work with Devon and Cornwall Wildlife Trusts and the Natural History Museum as well as supporting a group of dedicated strandings volunteers in the county.

DBRC have produced a user-friendly ID chart of marine megafauna for 2013/2014 copies of which are held at the Wembury Marine Centre and at DBRC.
