Tidal Thames Marine Mammals Partnership
The Tidal Thames Marine Mammals Partnership is a newly formed and evolving group aiming to:
- Ensure consistent reporting of marine mammal sightings to http://sites.zsl.org/inthethames/
- Co-ordinating first responder activities in response to reports of injured mammals
- Educating the public as to when a mammal is in distress and how to act around mammals to ensure no further distress to the mammals and no harm to humans
- Educating river users on how to act around swimming mammals
This page will be updated with further details following the next meeting.
Current members are:
The Partnership has produced a leaflet to help the public understand what is natural marine mammal behaviour and how to report concerns of a distressed mammal. A link to the leaflet will be provided soon.
The Partnership will also be publishing a webpage giving further information on these issues. A link to the page will be provided soon.
