IRISH WHALE AND DOLPHIN GROUP

We have officially withdrawn from the Agri-Food 2030 Strategy Committee as of this morning.

The draft document it produced fails to protect our climate, biodiversity, and small farmers.

It is now up to the Government who can - and must - do better.

IRISH WHALE AND DOLPHIN GROUP

Images taken yesterday of the stranded dead humpback whale in Roaringwater Bay, Co Cork revealed sufficient detail on the ventral fluke surface to enable us run it through the Irish Humpback Whale Photo ID Catalogue curated by the IWDG. We can confirm that this is not an individual previously documented in Irish waters. Which of course is not to say that it has never been here before.

Maybe it has been seen in the UK or further afield ? We look forward to hearing from colleagues who curate similar humpback whale photo-id catalogues. Images above courtesy of Robbie Shelly and Helen Tilson @SchullSeafari
