Whale Awareness Training

Whale watchingThe NCCT are working with the World Cetacean Alliance to create an online training course to mitigate the impacts of ship strikes and boat disturbance on whales, dolphins and porpoises

It is now recognized that the integration of training opportunities and education programs, crew licensing and personnel qualifications, along with the application of existing operational measures and technology, may provide a means to reduce ship strike interactions and successful whale protection strategies.

The course will provide skippers and crew worldwide with advice on how to operate large vessels around cetaceans whilst cruising and when focused on whale watching activities. Training will be in line with current global guidelines and will include understanding species and behaviours as well as best practice in responsible whale watching.
