Join our friends from British Divers Marine Life Rescue, Cetacean Strandings Investigation Programme and Receiver of Wreck Camilla Moore on Tue 8 September at 18:30.

Ever wondered what to do if you find a stranded marine mammal? Join Dan Jarvis from British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR), Rob Deaville from Cetacean Strandings Investigation Programme (CSIP) and Receiver of Wreck Camilla Moore to discuss who to call and what to do.

Hosted on Tuesday 8 September at 18:30, discover why marine mammals need our help, how to help, and the growing challenges faced in this one-hour webinar hosted by key UK marine mammal organisations, BDMLR and CSIP.

In a government and Zoological Society London (ZSL) review published last year, it was reported that almost 5,000 cetaceans (harbour porpoises, dolphins and whales) washed up on the UK shoreline between 2011 and 2017, which was a 15% increase on the previous reporting period. As ocean-lovers, divers can learn so much more about how to help these beautiful creatures when caught unawares.

The webinar will also cover what the investigation of strandings can tell us about the threats cetaceans face, as well as the history of Royal Fish: what they are, who they belong to and the Receiver of Wreck’s role in helping them.

Please be aware that this webinar will feature some graphic images of deceased mammals and their post-mortem examinations. This may be distressing for some participants so please proceed with caution.

The webinar will feature a Q&A session and you can submit your questions on the day, but if you would like to ask questions in advance, please send them to row@mcga.gov.uk.
