Marine mammal watchers can take part in a project…

Many residents on and visitors to Bute enjoy spotting the marine wildlife that we share our coasts and waters with. Clyde Porpoise is running a community project in which anyone spotting marine wildlife can report what they see and help to build a picture of the number and geographic spread of the marine wildlife in our area. Just go to online sightings form and complete as much information as possible – what type of animal was spotted (there is a drop down menu including types of whale, porpoise, dolphin, shark, otter, turtle, etc), the date, the time, how many were spotted, any birdlife that may have been seen, weather conditions, etc.

Taking part in this project could help to either fight the Dawnfresh fish farm proposals altogether or influence their use of Acoustic Deterrents.
