Observing & Interacting with Marine Wildlife Training

There is an organisation who do various levels of training with regard to observing and interacting with marine wildlife.

There is a possibility of them running a course for us Ribnetter's in the near future in the south area Poole or near by. The cost would be around £60 per person and they would need a group of 12 to break even on costs.

So take a look at the following link and post on this thread if your interested in attending.

Home - WiSe Scheme

Whales, dolphins, sharks, porpoises, seabirds… The waters around the UK are home to a fantastic variety of marine wildlife, whether visible from the shore or from a boat. However these wild animals are vulnerable to disturbance if not approached in a manner that respects their wild nature.

The WiSe Scheme seeks to minimise such unintentional disturbance through

•delivering training and accreditation to operators of registered passenger and charter vessels who wish to view marine wildlife,
•working with operators of service and support boats that may interact with marine wildlife, and
•liaising with key organisations to offer advice and guidance for the general public wishing to enjoy the marine environment.

All my Skippers have attended this course and I would recommend for any person who owns a boat/RIB.
It is interesting in its own right and the information on how/how not to interact, could mean you never get accussed of inappropriate interaction and the hefty fine.
