12 October – Cetaceans of Sussex

Saturday 12th October 2024 1.30pm – 3pm at the Discovery Centre.

Presented by Thea Taylor from the Sussex Dolphin Project.

Join Thea and James from the Sussex Dolphin Project for an evening of information on the whales, dolphins and porpoises found off the Sussex Coast.

The evening will consist of a talk and a Q&A session for you to ask questions about these charismatic but elusive animals.

In the talk, they will cover what their research programme has discovered, the questions still unanswered, how they look to protect our local cetaceans in the future, and the actions they are taking currently.

Thea Taylor is a marine biologist and Managing Director of the Sussex Dolphin Project. She has been involved with SDP since 2018 and has a particular interest in cetacean behaviour and human impacts.

James Milton is a student at the University of Sussex. He is the project support officer with the Sussex Dolphin Project and runs their terrestrial conservation and education section.

These talks are for members of The Friends of Rye Harbour Nature Reserve only. There is no charge, though donations are gratefully accepted. If you are not a member of The Friends but would like to attend, please JOIN US and let us know.
