If you're interested in getting involved with dolphins spotting yourself after reading this, you're in luck!


The Sea Watch Foundation is looking to recruit enthusiastic individuals with a keen interest in Welsh whales, dolphins and porpoises to become part of the Welsh Sea Watchers project.

The Welsh Sea Watches Project is a new initiative with the aim to develop a network of reliable volunteers around Wales to assist in data collection and further understanding and public awareness of the amazing cetacean species that can be seen off Welsh coasts.

Anglesey is a great place to spot cetaceans, within the last month, alone Welsh Sea Watcher volunteers have spotted a variety of different cetacean species around Anglesey, including bottlenose dolphins, Risso's dolphins, harbour porpoise, and just yesterday, some of our local volunteers helped BDMLR and RSPCA to rescue and re-float a stranded pygmy sperm whale on Newborough beach!
