MONDAY 27th July: 6.30 - 7: 45pm.

The free workshops are funded by the FLAG, (Fisheries Local Action Group) and will launch the new marine voluntary code for all sea users that has been developed by the Nature Conservation Team at Swansea County Council and Judith Oakley, Marine Biologist (Oakley Intertidal). 

The new marine wildlife voluntary code of conduct aims to help people interact safely with marine wildlife and help minimize disturbance to the fantastic sea life present within Swansea Bay.

Passionate marine biologist, Winter Dotto will lead presentations and discussions in the Green Room, above SUSSED, 4/5 James Street, Porthcawl, CF 36 3BG, 27th July, Neath Civic Centre 23rd of July and NSA Afan Employment Academy in Port Talbot 22nd July. 

She is currently working for the Swansea Environmental Forum on the Clear Streams Initiative and explains that "The events hope to draw attention to the new voluntary code of conduct for sea users and get people on board. I will also talk about marine recording, and how people can submit their sightings to their Local Authority Biodiversity Unit.”

The code of conduct applies to recreational and commercial sea users across Swansea, Neath Port Talbot and Bridgend counties.

Local marine biologist and author Judith Oakley will also be running sessions in Swansea on 22nd and 23rd July.
