CSI of the Sea: Cetacean post-mortem 2018

Every year around 600 porpoises, dolphins and whales (collectively known as cetaceans) strand around the UK coast. Why do these stranding events occur and what role does bycatch (accidental entanglement in fishing gear) play?

Join us behind-the-scenes for the opportunity to see a cetacean post-mortem, revealing the important work of the Cetacean Strandings Investigation Programme (CSIP).
