Conservation
Marine Spatial Plan Advisory Group

Since March 2018, the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group has participated in the Marine Spatial Plan Advisory Group established by the Department of Housing, Planning and Local
Government and chaired by the Minister for Housing and Urban Development, Damien English. The advisory group was set up to seek stakeholder input on the preparation of a Marine Spatial Plan for Ireland.
To date, the group has held seven meetings and the process is at the stage of creating a draft Marine Spatial Plan and supporting environmental assessments. These will then go out for public consultation before the publication of the final
Marine Spatial Plan in late 2020.

The Irish Whale and Dolphin Group have run a sighting and stranding scheme since 1991, maintain a photo-ID catalogue and regularly carry out research in a variety of topics.
