Dolphins, dolphins everywhere!

Lock down for us humans seems to have made seas quieter and less polluted for whales, dolphins and porpoises, and further evidence that nature may be using this time to reclaim its territory seems to be emerging from various areas off the coast of the UK.

In the past few days bottlenose dolphins have been seen swimming in the Irish Sea along the Blackpool coastline – a rare sighting at this time of year, whilst white-beaked dolphins have already been spotted swimming and playing in the English Channel, around four miles off the coast of Dungerness this week, a location where they will often appear.

And amazing footage taken off the Northumberland coast shows a pod of dolphins emerging from the water close to a boat, and orcas have been seen in the same area too!

These sightings have excited many who were able to see them over social media. They bring some joy to us during the current lock-down and have lead to comments about whether the seas should remain quiet and pollution free once isolation for us humans ends.

Whilst the seas are quiet, dolphins around the UK seem to be enjoying themselves right now.

Help us to help whales and dolphins. Why not adopt one now?
