Marine Mammal Medic Course

After a weak of teaching I swapped roles today and was a student on the British Divers Marine Life Rescue Medic Course based in Charmouth, Dorset. The reason I chose to do this course is that I spend a lot of time on and in the water and therefore have the capacity to be first or very quickly on the scene of a distressed mammal. The course looks at Seals, Dolphins and Whales and was a mixture of presentations and info in the morning with practical sessions in the sea during the afternoon.

No animals were harmed in the pictures as they are all made of rubber and flooded with sea water.
