About the event

The training on how to carry out coastal watches for dolphins and porpoises will be led Vanessa Lloyd of the Sea Watch Foundation. The session will start with an introduction at the National Trust's Brean Down cafe. This will include an illustrated talk on the general biology and classification of cetacean species, species identification, conservation issues and recommended survey methodology. This will be followed by a land watch at the end of Brean Down to put our skills into practice.
