The IWDG would like to thank everyone who sent in a photograph and their whale tales showcasing the marine mammals and their environments as part of our biodiversity Ireland photography competition.

It was a very difficult decision as all of the photos were of excellent quality and unique in their own way!

But the winner of our biodiversity Ireland photo competition is Conor Rowlands, Congratulations Conor
🐬🐬
As the decision was so difficult we have also decided to give IWDG goodies to some very close runners up. Tune into Flukey Friday this Friday at 11 to find out who the lucky runners up are.

Conor's Whale Tale:

We observed over 20 resident bottlenose dolphins in Brandon Bay and even some bottlenose dolphins belonging to a Scottish group.
This was a brilliant trip and the dolphins put on quite a performance!
