Marine Protected Areas

Join us for our FREE event on the 3rd November!

Fair Seas and the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group (IWDG) are hosting a special event in Skibbereen on the 3rd November to celebrate the rich waters off the west coast.

The marine life along our coastline is truly spectacular, from resident bottlenose dolphins, to the mysterious basking shark, and the charismatic humpback whale. Join us for a special afternoon celebrating these amazing waters and hear more about how we can protect them.

During the event we will hear about the work of the Fair Seas campaign and their ambition to see Ireland become a world leader in marine protection, and the upcoming Marine Protected Area (MPA) legislation. We will also provide an update from this season onboard Celtic Mist, including the new data collection programme in candidate MPAs identified by IWDG and Fair Seas. The event will end in a panel discussion on MPAs, where you can ask any burning questions that you have!

The event is 𝐅𝐑𝐄𝐄 and being held on the 3rd November – Skibbereen, West Cork Hotel, 6:30-8:30pm. No prior booking is required.
