MARINElife is delighted to be working with the Wildlife Trusts again in 2013 to provide marine mammal and seabird training courses. MARINElife operates through a group of dedicated volunteers who help gather data on the marine environment and we are always looking for new volunteers to help conduct surveys, report their sightings or help with other aspects of charity operation.
The training will give you a thorough grounding on the diverse range of species we study, the methodologies we follow and the part you can play in safeguarding their future.

“MARINElife has an incredibly important role to play in the protection of
our invaluable coast and seas. The work that their dedicated and
enthusiastic volunteers do to collect information on the distribution of
both cetaceans and sea birds helps managers and policy makers make
important and informed decisions about marine management and conservation.
Their work also helps to raise awareness of an aspect of our seas that few
people appreciate - we have a fantastic selection of whales, dolphins and
sea birds in our waters that some people might assume you have to travel
abroad to see! Through this understanding and appreciation of our thriving
coastal waters comes a desire to protect and conserve our local coastal
environment. This is vital as we face a time where our seas are facing
continued pressure from fisheries, climate change and other man made
It is for these reasons that I am thrilled to become the patron for
MARINElife and continue to raise awareness about their fantastic work and
our stunning seas!”
