Course: Marine Mammal Surveyor Course

Organisation: ORCA
Location: Derby, Plymouth, Newquay Cornwall, Newcastle, Bangor, Southampton
Course type: Short Course
Date: Various
Cost: £60/ £54 concessions (students/unemployed)
Website: www.orcaweb.org.uk
Contact name: Lucy Babey
Contact email:

Our unique, participative volunteer scheme enables members of the public to collect scientific data about whales, dolphins and porpoises (cetaceans). This gives you the opportunity to contribute directly to vital conservation work. By enabling this innovative link to be made between people and marine mammals, ORCA can inspire, educate and enthuse the wider public about the conservation and biodiversity of cetaceans. This certificated, fun and illuminating course will give you all of the skills required to competently identify cetaceans at sea and take part in ORCA’s scientifically recognised surveys.

ORCA’s MMS training course incorporates theoretical and practical training on marine mammal identification, organising and completing line-transect surveys as part of a team. With an international network of research vessels, ferries and cruise ships donating spaces to ORCA volunteers, this is a fantastic opportunity for you to participate in future whale and dolphin surveys. Over 30% of the global diversity of cetaceans are seen in our waters. These creatures range from the diminutive harbour porpoise to the mighty blue whale, the largest animal that ever lived!

Why complete the MMS training course?

ORCA relies on a large and dedicated team of volunteer observers to carry out its research, but to achieve the standard required we request that they first complete an ORCA MMS training course. In return, ORCA provides its volunteers with a wide range of opportunities to take part in our surveys, experience life at sea, encounter whales and dolphins as well as gain a greater understanding of ocean ecosystems and the threats to marine life. But, even if you don’t plan to get involved with ORCA in the long-term this training course is designed as an excellent introduction to conducting wildlife surveys that are of scientific value and improve your species identification skills.

£60 per person, £54 concessions (students, seniors, unemployed). Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable
