Watch out for Wildlife Crime - Marine Wildlife Disturbance Watch out for Wildlife Crime - Marine Wildlife Disturbance

Did you know some marine species are protected by law? If you see anyone injuring, disturbing or harassing marine wildlife, the incident should be reported. Call the Police Service of Northern Ireland on 101 or call DAERA Marine and Fisheries Division on 028 9056 9262 or Marine.Wildlife@daera-ni.gov.uk

A leaflet has been produced as part of the ongoing ‘Watch out for Wildlife Crime’ public awareness campaign by the Partnership for Action Against Wildlife Crime NI (PAW NI).  The guidance aims to better protect our marine protected species, for example, seals, whales, dolphins and porpoises.
