Whale Tales Cork: Encounters with humpback whales in West Cork

Are you interested in large whales, or curious about their conservation and research into these magnificent mammals that are returning each year to Cork’s inshore waters? 

If so, the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group is delighted to announce Whale Tales Cork on Saturday, March 28, between 10am and 4pm, at the Celtic Ross Hotel (Warren Suite), Rosscarbery, with an optional land-based Whalewatch at nearby Cloghna Head, 4-5pm (weather permitting). 

This unique one-day event will bring together a diverse mix of citizen scientists, researchers, operators and marine wildlife enthusiasts, all passionate about whales, to share their stories and experiences. It will be an opportunity for the IWDG to present its findings with members of the public who have supported the Irish Cetacean Recording Schemes over the past 25 years and to encourage participation in these biological recording schemes. It will also be an opportunity to look ahead to the next 20 years, to explore the challenges facing our visiting giants and possible management implications.

Cost: IWDG members €25, Non members €50 (includes one year membership)
