Cardigan Bay Dolphins Discovered In Manx Waters

Bottlenose dolphins swimming in Douglas Bay, Isle of Man, have been recognised as the same dolphins also seen in Cardigan Bay in Wales.

Eleanor Stone, Marine Officer with the Manx Wildlife Trust posted dolphin photos on the Trust’s Facebook page where Cardigan Bay’s science officer, Sarah Perry recognised one of them.

Since then, another two dolphins in the pictures have been matched to the Cardigan Bay visitors using the method of comparing the unique marks dolphins carry on their dorsal fin.

Data collected about these dolphins is shared between the Manx Wildlife Trust, WDCS and the Sea Watch Foundation and plays an important part in teaching us where the dolphins live and how far they travel. With that knowledge, plans for protecting them can be more effective.
