I am not sure if you ever get used to riding your bike down the road next to donkeys, cows and chickens; having flying fish zoom by while looking for whales; or saying hello to everyone you pass – but I hope not! And that is what life is like on Salt Cay, so very special.
The BBC have a wonderful programme in its Natural World series on dolphins rescuing humans, but its only available on their I-player for a few days more. If you get a chance, watch it, - its quite amazing.
It would seem that no only is whaling an anachronism to us in WDCS, it seems the Japanese public are just not buying the Government’s arguments, or the whale meat, either.
So if you saw my last post, hopefully you went to YouTube and watched our new campaign video focused on the UK government doing a u-turn on protecting the Moray Firth dolphins. Right now, I'm the one "looking after" our presence on the YouTube site, and I have to tell you, it's a happening place - but not necessarily for all the reasons you might think.
Please help us spread the word by passing this video on to as many of your friends and family as possible - let's protect our dolphins!
WOW!, did we have a storm at Chanonry Point yesterday or what? I was down there with the BBC looking at doing some filming but the wind was blowing at hurricane force and we could only get out the car for about two minutes. The sea was boiling and the salt spray was going everywhere - it was incredible.
After two weeks of no sleep, excessive caffeine and going prematurely grey, the Protect Our Dolphins viral video is complete! Check it out;
We have had a little break in the weather and were able to go out whale watching two days in a row, February 4th and 5th. Both days we saw a pod of dolphins and a mother and calf humpback pair.
Recycle your Moby!
Did you know there are about 90 million unwanted mobile phones in the UK, lying around in drawers and cupboards? They contain lots of harmful substances which if just thrown away will cause damage to the environment.
The great news is that these old phones can help WDCS to save whales and dolphins!
