Marine Clean 2019: in memory of an entangled Whale

Marine Clean 2019: in memory of an entangled Whale

This latest Wardie Bay Beachwatch, providing citizen science data to Marine Conservation Society is in memory of an entangled humpback that the Forth Marine Mammals #forthmarinemammals group tried desperately to save. They named the whale White Fluke (or Tynae), and are hosting a Firth of Forth-wide beachclean on Sunday 16 June to encourage everyone to make our seas a better place. Ghost Gear - fishing ropes - weighed this magestic whale down like an anchor, cutting his fluke, until he was eventually too exhausted to fight. We have to change this world that we have blighted with our carelessness and pollution.

Beach clean ups are taking place all around our shores on this day. Locations include:
Musselburgh
Longniddry
Portobello
Seafield &
Wardie Bay
