Raising Awareness

One of the key lessons learned since the establishment of the voluntary marine protected area – the Marine Heritage Coast – in 1992, has been that education is a vitally important management tool.

By informing people of the potential problems to the Bottlenose Dolphin population of some recreational activity, particularly boating and dolphin watching, much can be achieved to limit any negative impacts on the animals. To this end, as well as providing information at harbours and other boat launching sites. Ceredigion County Council also work closely with local schools raising awareness and promoting respect and understanding for the animals found within the Cardigan Bay SAC.
