MVS links up with Seawatch


The Seawatch Foundation held its National Whale and Dolphin Watch Week across the UK at the start of this month.

MVS AVO North, Chris Todd joined Seawatch North West local coordinator, Stacey McCarthy at Rossall Point Tower at Fleetwood in Lancashire.

Unfortunately the sea state did not help the watch with only a number of “possible” sightings getting into the log.

This meant there was time for both the MVS and Seawatch to explain their objects and aims to each other.

Stacey noted that the MVS have four Marine Mammal Medics locally and hopes that the two groups can develop joint working.
