What Does British Divers Marine Life Rescue Do?
British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) originated in 1988, when a group of caring divers gathered to help with the occurrence of thousands of seal deaths in East Anglia. They helped the seals as much as possible throughout this epidemic caused by the Phocine Distemper Virus.
Since then, BDMLR has been dedicated to helping marine mammals and other species in distress. They rescue and provide care for marine wildlife during marine disasters such as oil spills as well as incidents such as stranded and entangled marine animals. Each year there are over 1,000 new volunteers trained to become Marine Mammal Medics, and they have 20 pontoons throughout the UK waiting to help stranded whales.
What Help Do They Provide Marine Life?
British Divers Marine Life Rescue use their skills to help marine mammals and other species in need. Their volunteers are given specialist training to ensure that they have the knowledge and skills to allow them to act in the best interests of the animal and provide the rescue and care they need. The volunteers learn the biology of marine mammals, as well as how to conduct health assessments, provide first aid and use specialist support equipment.
They are able to provide further care to animals in need via the Cornwall Seal Hospital; their own specialist hospital which provides emergency, temporary care for seal pups. Their experienced veterinary professionals and volunteers are able to support the seal pups before they are ready for rehabilitation and release.
