A Life On The Ocean Wave....

Hi Everyone,

WOW!, did we have a storm at Chanonry Point yesterday or what? I was down there with the BBC looking at doing some filming but the wind was blowing at hurricane force and we could only get out the car for about two minutes. The sea was boiling and the salt spray was going everywhere - it was incredible.

Exciting news

We have had a little break in the weather and were able to go out whale watching two days in a row, February 4th and 5th. Both days we saw a pod of dolphins and a mother and calf humpback pair.

Did you know there are about 90 million unwanted mobile phones in the UK, lying around in drawers and cupboards? They contain lots of harmful substances which if just thrown away will cause damage to the environment.

The great news is that these old phones can help WDCS to save whales and dolphins!

Whilst we have talked in this column about the UK Governemnt potentially allowing noisy and disruptive exploration in especially fragile dolphin habitats in the UK, the US Governemnt has been trying to overturn all scientific and legal measures to prevent its Navy from operating unhind

The coming storm

Whilst I write this, WDCS is gearing up to challenge the UK government on the future of the Moray Firth Special Area of Conservation (SAC). At stake is not just this area of outstanding natural beauty, but the Moray Firth dolphins themselves and indeed perhaps the fundamental principals of marine conservation in the UK.

Not A Nice Day, But.....

I was asked recently over the phone by a buddy of mine "What did you get up to today?" I replied "Oh, not much, just watched a perfectly healthy young whale being euthanased by a vet..." My friend didn't say anything for a minute, he was actually quite choked himself, and he hadn't even been there!
