Do you like nothing better than gazing out to sea, to see what you can see? If so, you may be able to help with a fascinating project being undertaken up and down the North Sea coastline!
Citizenfins is looking for your photographs of bottlenose dolphins! For years these amazing marine mammals have been viewed off the east coast of Scotland, particularly in places like the Moray Firth and the Firth of Forth, but recently this population has expanded south into English waters!
Inch Cape Offshore Ltd is delighted to be helping fund the Sea Mammal Research Unit (SMRU) with this work. To expand on their dedicated survey programme SMRU need your help to monitor the bottlenose dolphins! They’re looking for your photos, taken off South East Scotland and along the North East coast of England, of the dolphin’s dorsal fins to help understand the extent of the range expansion. Further information is available in this leaflet and to learn more about the long-established photo ID project monitoring the Moray Firth bottlenose dolphin population visit their website https://synergy.st-andrews.ac.uk/citizenfins
