The Manx Whale and Dolphin Watch surveys and records cetacean sightings around the Isle of Man and works in collaboration with the Manx Wildlife Trust and the Sea Watch Foundation of the UK.
The Manx Whale and Dolphin Watch gathers sightings from the public and a network of observers around the Isle of Man and all sightings data are submitted to the Sea Watch Foundation for inclusion in their database covering the British Isles and Ireland.
We are particularly grateful for the generous support of the Isle of Man Government through their Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture.
We are grateful to them for their financial and scientific support as well as their promotion of our work, all of which increases public awareness of these endangered and threatened species in our waters.
Would you like to join our survey team ?
Having advertised for volunteers for the last five years, we are regrettably full on our boat based research vessel Grampus. However, we are still keen to recruit more people to help us with land based surveys for cetaceans. Land based surveys are a good way of watching cetaceans, as there is no disturbance and so you are watching the animals behaving in a natural way. Full training will of course be given, you just need a keen eye and be someone that enjoys sitting in beautiful places looking at beautiful animals in their natural environment.
If you would like to join our group of trained volunteers, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Please report any and all sightings to this website, all sightings are important
- many thanks.
