BDMLR frees Porpoise in Glasgow (Photo: Craig Borthwick, BDMLR)The opening story is that of the porpoise rescue in Glasgow in February this year, when BDMLR Glasgow Coordinator Craig Borthwick and his team successfully encouraged a porpoise that had got to the wrong side of the Clyde Tidal Weir, to go back to the seaware side. The film crew were following Craig as one of the Police Wildlife Crime Officers featured in this new series that documents the UK's National Wildlife Crime Unit as it tackles crimes against wildlife and endangered species.
