mwntwatchCardigan Bay is home to Europe’s largest resident population of bottlenose dolphins as well as breeding grey seals, seabirds and internationally important marine habitats. Much of the coastline is designated as SSSI and there are two marine Special Areas of Conservation.

We are looking for volunteers to help collect data for Dolphin Watch, a long running programme monitoring marine mammals and boating activity.

Working with the Council’s small but friendly conservation team in New Quay, no previous experience is necessary as full training is provided by our Dolphin Watch Co-ordinator, all that is required is enthusiasm and a time commitment of two hours per week. The Dolphin Watch programme runs each year from May to September.
