Sea Watch Saturday

Events

Next dates

Devon Wildlife Trust's Marine Engagement team are kicking off monthly sea watches at Wembury Point! Join us on the first Saturday of each month (usually), to learn all about Devon's marine megafauna!

We will be joined by enthusiastic local volunteers and sea watch expert, Paul Burley, who will show us how to search for cetaceans and sea birds from the land, as well as learning about their behaviour and fascinating lives at sea.

We'll be collecting vital data whilst we're at it, aligning with 'Seaquest Southwest', a citizen science project run by Cornwall Wildlife Trust, which aims to to engage people with the marine environment; to collect data on marine wildlife; and to better understand and conserve marine wildlife.

This event is free of charge (although donations to Devon Wildlife Trust are gratefully accepted), so all you need to take part are a decent pair of binoculars or a telescope! Feel free to bring a snack, drink and camping chair with you and please dress appropriately for the weather.

Please note, all children must be accompanied by an adult. This event requires walking for approximately 10 mins on a wheelchair accessible concrete path, followed by sitting and watching with binoculars for a period of time, probably without seeing much, so it may not be suitable for younger children.

Parking spaces are very limited at Wembury Point National Trust car park ( Spring Rd, PL9 0BA). You can reach Wembury Point via a 30 minute walk along the SW Coastpath from Wembury Beach National Trust car park (Church Road, PL9 0HP). We actively encourage local participants to walk or cycle where possible please.

This event is highly weather dependent, so please check your emails the day before in case of cancellation.
