Volunteers make a huge contribution to conserving Cardigan Bay’s marine environment. Why not join the team and get involved in activities such as helping us collect valuable data about dolphins, clearing litter from beaches and raising awareness about the importance of our local environment.


Dolphin Watch

For those that can spare 2 hours a week in the summer months and like the idea of seeing dolphins in the wild on a regular basis why not take part in ‘dolphin watch’? You will be part of a dedicated team studying the relationship between local boating traffic and bottlenose dolphin site usage which helps us make considered decisions about the way we manage recreational activities. Full training is available, and someone will always be on call to help you out.
