Four of our Living Seas volunteers boarded the Anna Lloyd yesterday, as part of an 8-hour boat survey around Cardigan Bay. During the trip, members of the public were delighted to spot the Cardigan Bay Big Three, in the glorious sunshine. Bottlenose dolphins were sighted at the start and end of the trip, whilst Harbour porpoises and Atlantic grey seals were spotted throughout. Of particular note ought to be the high number of Harbour porpoises spotted, most of which appeared to be travelling or foraging. A number of Rhizostoma jellyfish were also observed during the survey.
