As of November 2015, this is in the process of being updated and moved to new servers so will receive few updates from this point.

Click TheWhaleandDolphinMan logo to continue to the new website of Robin Petch, under construction, with information about the ilustrated talks and presentations I can offer to clubs, societies and event organisers, my work as a cetacean naturalist and reports from recent voyages on cruise ships and whale watching vessels. Some information from the Dolphinspotter site will also gradually be transferred here.

Click the Sea Watch Foundation logo to continue directly to the website of the UK's leading cetacean research charity. There is news of recent sightings from each region, an online form to report your own, information about the National Whale and Dolphin Watch and masses of information about the UK's whales, dolphins and porpoises and how you can get involved in studying and protecting them.

Click the International Dolphin Watch  logo to continue directly to the website of IDW, with news about the work of Dr Horace Dobbs and others around the world studying the human-dophin bond and dolphin healing and therapy with non-captive dolphins. Visit the Dolphin Shop to buy Horace's films and books, including the Dilo storoes for children about the adventures of afriendly wild dolphin.

Click the Whitby Whale Watching logo to continue directly to the site of Yorkshire's only dedicated whale watching company. Find out about recent sightings, dates and times and how to book trips, mainly July-October.
