Wildlife Enthusiasts Wanted

Hi everyone it's James Copeland.  I have recently been made one of the regional coordinators for Kent for Seawatch Foundation, a charity that specialises in the conservation and protection of Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises. This is where you guys come in. Not much is known about them off the kent coast - only when they become stranded - and this is something I want to change. 
From 24th July - 1st August, Seawatch Foundation is running a national whale and dolphin week in which people like you and me go out recording and looking for whales, dolphins and porpoises on our local coastline. I'm looking for 10-15 people to help me with some surveying during the week, each survey will last about two hours as staring at the sea can be very tiring.
 I'm hoping to have people surveying at 5 different locations (not necessarily every day) these are:
Isle of grain, Margate, Ramsgate, Dover and Dungeness  (please let me know preference)
Training is provided and I have some I.D kits and binoculars for people to borrow. 
If anyone is interested in helping do some surveying or just want to come along to watch please message me on :07943566931 or jcopeland.wildlife@gmail.com
(Closing date for volunteers is 16th July)
