Saturday 20th October
Pádraig Wooley – Officer of the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group
Pádraig Wooley will be our guest speaker for the evening and provide us with an informative talk on Whales and Whale Watching Along the Cork Coast. This talk will also focus on the Citizen Science agenda and how the wider sailing community can help support cetacean conservation by reporting observations to IWDG.
Pádraig and his colleagues travel nationwide presenting at walks, talks and workshops and engaging with interested individuals and groups who could contribute cetacean sighting and stranding records to the IWDG. The validation process increased considerably the value of these records, which were databased and made accessible for online interrogation on www.iwdg.ie making this a unique resource.
Pádraig is a regular contributor to a range of Irish natural history publications, media and wildlife documentaries.
