Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre Bottlenose dolphin Photo-Identification Catalogue 2008

Project Last Updated: 16/07/2009 11:15:00 Source : CBMWC 2008

The following catalogue consists of an identification sheet for each successfully identified bottlenose dolphin by volunteer researchers at the CBMWC during the 2005, 2006, 2007 & 2008 field seasons (a culmination of four years work).

This catalogue is part of an ongoing long-term photo-identification study of the bottlenose dolphins of Cardigan Bay, and is the basis of a readily accessible catalogue that can be used by relevant bodies, groups and individuals to ensure the long-term protection of these magnificent wild creatures that frequent our waters.

Combining ecotourism with research will help to ensure the long-term sustainability of this photo-identification project. Research funded by the paying public provides an important environmental education and awareness tool which should be used to help ensure the long-term future of the bottlenose dolphins of Cardigan Bay.

Please note this is a large file (35mb) and may take a few minutes to download.
