The Irish Whale and Dolphin Group in association with Inis, invite you to Whale Watch Ireland 2022 on Saturday 20th August 2022, between 2:00-4:00 PM:. This annual event comprises free and guided whale watches at local headlands and vantage points, as part of All-Ireland whale watch day. This year’s event is once again timed to coincide with National Heritage Week. These simultaneous land-based watches at 18 locations around the Irish coast provide IWDG researchers with a unique overview of cetacean (whales and dolphins) and basking shark activity on the day; and as Citizen Scientists you can also play an important part.So no matter where you live in Ireland you are unlikely to be too far from a local watch site, where IWDG personnel will be there to answer any questions about our whales and dolphins, the work of the IWDG and hopefully to show you any animals that might be in the area on the day. As always, you should dress appropriately for the weather on the day, bring your optics and leave your pets at home. If you've any questions you should contact your local watch leader on the link belowdrive.google.com/file/d/13rpDXX5EP7AhXlJipqv28g9Cnh8_RdUN/view?usp=sharing ... See MoreSee Less
