This weekend (5th and 6th May) is the Lyme Regis Fossil Festival and as part of the festival many of the Natural History Museum's scientists will be in the Grand Marquee on the seafront at Lyme Regis talking about fossils and lots of other things.
Members of the cetacean stranding team will be there to chat about the stranding project and some of the research that we do. We have nearly 300 records from the Dorset area, from over a dozen different species of whale and dolphin that have stranded on the Dorset part of the channel.
We will bring along some interesting bits for you to see and if the weather is good we will be putting our Remotely Operated Vehicle into the water.
We will be there all weekend so come along if you are in the area, talk to us and find out more about these wonderful animals that end up stranded on our shores.
Hope to see you there.
