Cardigan Bay enjoys a rich marine environment brimming with wildlife ñ bottlenose dolphins, harbour porpoise, Atlantic grey seals and a variety of bird life can be spotted throughout the year.
In recognition of its importance, some parts of the Bay have been selected as Special Areas of Conservation to ensure that the region’s wildlife is safeguarded for the benefit of future generations.
The Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre is a public information, education and research centre, whose aim is to raise awareness of the marine environment. It does this through its projects, surveys, data collection and by offering dedicated boat time to students.
The Centre also provides a quiet working environment and an opportunity to liaise with other students, volunteers and staff. They can use the on-site facilities, computers and equipment to create educational material for use in schools and for the website.
The Centre is currently seeking funding to set up a school outreach programme linked directly to the national curriculum.
