Northern Rivers Dolphin Watchers

All dolphin and ocean lovers can now join in and help assist with the research by becoming part of the Northern Rivers Dolphin Watchers and help increase the understanding of the ecology of dolphins and assist in protecting populations that live in our own backyard. The Northern Rivers Dolphin Watchers will take part in a series of dolphin population surveys to be conducted along the coastline at observation points between Byron Bay and Ballina. Each for three Saturdays each month, Dolphin Watchers will meet at a land observation station and complete six hour surveys, to observe and record the numbers, behaviour and movements of dolphins.

To join the Northern Rivers Dolphin Watchers group, simply send us an email info(at)dolphinresearchaustralia.com.

Northern Rivers Dolphin Watchers will be surveying dolphin populations at observation points between Byron Bay and Ballina (Cape Byron Lighthouse, Broken Head, Lennox Head and at the Lighthouse Beach carpark in Ballina).

The surveys will generally take place for 6 hours between 7:00 and 13:00.  All surveys are weather dependent, so please make sure you contact us prior to the day to confirm. Be prepared to be exposed to all weather conditions, so make sure you bring along sun protective clothing, water, food etc.

The Northern Rivers Dolphin Watchers is a citizen science program for volunteers who have a passion for marine life, assisting in research and gaining experience in marine mammals surveys.
