Description

CWT Marine Strandings Network Training Day

Cornwall Wildlife Trust Marine Strandings Network has been running for over 25 years and it has become a respected and recognised volunteer network collecting nationally important and valuable data for conservation purposes.


Callout Volunteer Training

We hope you can join us for an informal training session, where we will be holding a simulated stranding using life-sized model of a dolphin and seal to train you in recording, health and safety and retrieval procedures.

During the training we'll give you an introduction what the Marine Strandings Network is and how it works, cetacean (dolphin, whales and porpoise) identification, and how to use our recording forms for cetaceans and seals to gather the vital records we need. This will be a fun day, but with a serious purpose.

The training will be held at the Cornwall Wildlife Trust offices. Directions will be sent on confirmation of your attendance.

The training costs £15 and you will receive an information pack and a strandings kit to take home with you. You will also need to bring your own lunch (tea and coffee will be provided), and be sure to bring very warm clothes, water proofs and sensible shoes with you for the afternoon outdoor session.

The Your Shore Beach Rangers project is funding places for active members of Local Marine Groups in Cornwall. if you are a member of a local marine group, please email strandings@cronwallwildlifetrust.org.uk and we will give you a consession code to get your free ticket.
