Brixham Seawatch was set up in 1990 to protect and promote awareness of the whales, dolphins and porpoises around our shores. Numbers of these cetaceans are declining at an alarming rate, with the bottlenose dolphin particularly affected. Brixham Seawatch monitors these numbers through collation of reported sightings from numerous sources.
An important activity is the examination of dolphins, porpoises and whales washed up on our beaches – frequently following distress caused by illegal fishing practices. Such evidence is used to lobby parlimentarians and others to try to achieve more effective controls of those whose activities endanger these wonderful creatures.
