We are a voluntary network of trained marine mammal medics who respond to call outs from the general public, HM Coastguard, Police, RSPCA and SSPCA and are the only marine animal rescue organisation operating across England, Wales and Scotland. Not only are we called upon by the other emergency services, but we also train their staff.

BDMLR is a registered charity and is operated entirely by volunteers. Our rescue teams are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

We have a wide range of equipment strategically placed throughout the country to deal with strandings of marine animals, oil spills, fishing gear entanglement and in fact any type of marine animal in trouble. This includes rescue boats, equipment trailers, whale and dolphin pontoon sets, a whale disentanglement kit and each area has a medic kit with essential supplies.

Although our name mentions divers, you don't have to be a diver to be a supporter or medic. Our medic base covers all walks of life and includes: teachers, plumbers, executives, managers, retail staff, secretaries, builders, photographers... the list goes on and on. All you need is a positive attitude, don't mind being wet and cold, and are able-bodied. The rest we teach you on our Marine Mammal Medic Course.

We are entirely funded by donations and can only run our emergency service for marine animals with your support.

    In my last post I took a trip back in Skye's history to look at the ruined Church at Kilmuir just outside Dunvegan.  For this post I thought it would be interesting to go even further back in time to the Iron Age.

    Portree Boat Trips and Eagles

    There are a couple of good boat trips out of Portree where it is possible to get some great views of White-tailed sea eagles and other wildlife.

    Dolphins

    Have lived on Skye for nearly 6 years and every now and then we get to catch up with some Dolphins. Looking for Otters spotted a white wave in the distance. The water was like a duck pond so had to be something swimming! And there they were!

    The Quiraing

    The Quiraing on Skye is one of the most recognisable locations from the island appearing in dozens of photographs and films.  A trip at dawn to get some sunrise pictures.
