WDC will be attending WhaleFest in Brighton (UK) on 27 and 28 October, the largest celebration of wild whales and dolphins in the world.
 
The event also includes an external exhibition at the Jubilee Library in Brighton (22-28 October) showcasing the variety of whales and dolphins found in UK waters.
 
WDC has contributed to the Library exhibition, which also includes work by wildlife artist Lucy Molleson as well as exhibits from the UK Cetacean (whale and dolphin) Strandings Investigation Programme.
 
The exhibition is free and experts on whales and dolphins will be available in the afternoons to speak to interested members of the public.

You can also meet our experts on the WDC stand at the main WhaleFest event held at the Brighton Metropole Hotel on 27 October. WDC will be running two children’s workshops and chairing the expert panel on whaling at 10am on Sunday morning – an event that marks the anniversary of the global ban on commercial whaling which was signed 30 years ago at the very same hotel.
 
Entry to the WhaleFest is by ticket only. Details of the main events on Saturday and Sunday can be found at:  http://www.whale-fest.com/?page_id=1632
 
Tickets can be purchased via the WhaleFest website (or on the door) and other details of activities in and associated with the WhaleFest can also be found at: http://www.whale-fest.com/
