Special Event at Spey Bay Dolphin Centre on August 1st

An Evening with Charlie and Mark At the WDCS Scottish Dolphin Centre Spey Bay

 

from 19.30 on August 1st

The evening will consist of two intertwined presentations:

Why Won’t Whaling Die?

Mark Simmonds will explore this perplexing question by considering our relationship with whales and dolphins through the ages with particular reference to the intertwined history of the British and ‘whale-kind’

.

Mark is the International Director of Science of the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society and a member of the UK delegation to the International Whaling Commission. He is the survivor of 19 consecutive meetings of the IWC (which means more than 20 solid months of meetings) and comes ‘hot-foot’ from the latest meeting in Panama in July. He is also the author/an editor of Whales and Dolphins of the World, Whales and Dolphins – Culture, Cognition and Human Perceptions, and many other articles and scientific papers.   

In The Company of Dolphins

Charlie Phillips will talk about the ecology of the resident population of Bottlenose dolphins in the Moray Firth (and beyond) illustrated with far too many photographs and many, many silly stories about watching, studying and photographing these amazing animals.

 

Charlie is a renowned photographer and naturalist who has been monitoring the dolphins and other wildlife of the Moray Firth for over 20 years and is the head of the WDCS Adopt a Dolphin programme in his role of WDCS Field Officer although why he tries to find dolphins in a field is a bit confusing…he has articles and images published in magazines, journals and books worldwide.  

 

THERE WILL BE A COLLECTION DURING THE EVENING TO SUPPORT THE WORK OF WDCS.
