Meet the North Devon ‘Expert’ Marine Mammals 22nd February

Seal Pup

Here in North Devon we are home to a large range of wildlife and most of it is right on our doorstep! Join us at the Countryside Centre on Saturday 22nd of February and speak to our Dave Jenkins Seal & Dolphin Expert‘Expert’ Dave Jenkins to discover the marine mammals that call our ocean home.

Dave first joined the Mortehoe Coastguard 52 years ago and it was his duty to notify the Natural History Museum when a stranding occurred. His interest for marine mammals was able to grow in his time with the coastguard. Now he ventures out almost every day to track and photograph seals. His work contributes to the important research being conducted by the Cornwall Seal Group to monitor seal populations.

Visit the Countryside Centre between 10:00am and 2:00pm to catch Dave where you can ask him anything about his experiences, photographs and the animals he studies.
