Islanders learn how to become marine medics

Monday, April 18, 2016 - 15:43

STRANDED whales and dolphins are, sadly, a recurring sight along the coastline.
However, Island people concerned about their welfare if they become trapped on the shore are now able to do something about it, thanks to a 'marine medic’ course held at Yaverland Sailing and Boat Club on Sunday.
The day-long course, run by British Divers Marine Life Rescue, consisted of a morning of lectures for people concerned about the welfare of whales, dolphins and seals before a practical session in the sea where trainee medics got the chance to try rescuing life-sized models of marine mammals.
