Back in September BDMLR Chairman Alan Knight OBE helped by a team of marine mammal medics attended a Marine Mammal Medic Course especially for Kate Humble and BBC1's Autumn Watch. Using a life size inflatable model whale, dolphin and seal filled with water, Kate was trained how to rescue and secure a seal, how to provide first aid to a stranded dolphin and how to refloat a stranded whale using a special pontoon system developed in New Zealand.

Don't forget BDMLR calendars are available on sale featuring a photo on BDMLR's newest Patron Kate Humble at the recent training course. They cost £2.99 plus P&P each and are available for BDMLR HQ.
