Drop-in volunteering: Sealife Survey at Mortehoe

Join us at Mortehoe with your binoculars for our 100 mile-long sealife survey for the Sea Watch Foundation. This event is part of a series of surveys taking place along the North Devon and Exmoor coast.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event

Join the rangers at Mortehoe with your binoculars as part of a 100 mile-long sea life survey for the Sea watch Foundation. We’ll be on the coast path to see which sea life we can spot, and recording it as part of a series of surveys taking place right along the North Devon and Exmoor coast between between 26 July - 4 August.

The rangers will provide everything you need to record your sightings, although we advise bringing comfortable outdoor shoes, your own binoculars if you have them and something to sit on.

This event takes place during the National Whale and Dolphin Watch run by the Sea Life Foundation. Watches and surveys are taking place across the country to create a ‘snapshot’ view of what can be seen in our UK coastal waters.

It’s also a great chance to talk to the rangers about the different types of volunteering we offer, including accessible and remote roles.
