My week of work experience at Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre was truly amazing. I saw dolphins from the second I arrived on the Friday afternoon, even from the car park! I started my work experience on the Monday morning where everyone was so welcoming which made the experience a lot less daunting. I was really lucky with all of my land watches where I saw dolphins every time, we were also lucky to see a sunfish and seal from land! Even working in the centre and education was good fun and the volunteers taught me how to make bookings through the phone and help sell the merchandise. I also helped update the website and facebook page with the recent sightings! My favourite part of the week was the two boat trips I went on, they were both amazing and the dolphins came so close to the boat leaping and jumping everywhere it really was brilliant! It was great talking to the volunteers about what they are studying at university and where they go etc, I have always wanted to be a marine biologist but now I’m also considering zoology so I have a lot wider choice, thank you! The week really was great and I’d love to come back in the future, I enjoyed everything I did and really didn’t want to leave, thank you so much once again!
