Learn about the porpoises, dolphins and whales that regularly visit our Tyne to Tees seas.

About this event

Harbour porpoise, bottlenose dolphin, white-beaked dolphin and minke whale are the four most regularly encountered cetacean species in the North East, but how much do we know about them?  When and why are they here, and where are they most likely to be seen? 

Join us and Martin Kitching, the Northumberland/Durham Regional Coordinator for SeaWatch Foundation, to find answers for these questions and more! 

Booking is essential! 

This event is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, and is part of the SeaScapes ‘Intertidal Interactive’ Project. To find out more please visit www.exploreseascapes.co.uk
