If you come across a live stranded marine mammal please note the place, the state of the tide and any injuries you can see without getting close and call the British Divers Marine Life Rescue on HOTLINE: 01825 765546 They will then advise you on what to do and will get a trained medic out as soon as possible. The BDMLR is a registered charity and is operated entirely by volunteers. Their rescue teams are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Sadly, sometimes it is too late by the time an animal is discovered. However, a lot of important information can be gleaned about the health of our marine environment and causes of death. Please phone or text: 07979 245893 or 01463 243030 with information including the date found, location (grid reference if possible), photographs of the carcase, species or description, overall length (estimation).
