Our dolphins need our help!
Mandurah is a dolphin stranding hotspot!
Almost a third of all our resident dolphins have stranded in our waterways, some many times over. Unfortunately not all survive and if they do they suffer severe stress and sunburn.
Monitoring cameras are needed at the main stranding hotspots
We know where the main stranding hotspots are. Unfortunately they are remote and away from anyone's view. So dolphins often have to wait for high tide, some not surviving. If dolphins die by stranding this has significant impacts on the entire population. For example if we loose a breeding female who gives birth every 3 years imagine how many dolphins will not be born due to her death.
With your help we could have eyes on these stranding areas
Along with Department of Biodiversity, Conservation, and Attractions ( DBCA) we will install monitoring cameras so DBCA (parks and wildlife) officers and the rescue group can have live streamed viewing to see any stranded animals, allowing a fast response and rescue.
Can you help?
We are currently fundraising to increase the number of cameras to be installed as our waterways are so vast. The more cameras the more dolphins can be saved. Unfortunately each camera costs approximately $10,000 and we have many stranding hotspots to cover.
The first camera - will be funded by DBCA! Thankyou.
The second camera - will be funded by DBCA! Thankyou
The third camera - watch this space. Expected to be funded
The fourth camera **is the community's camera** - Already partly funded if you would like to be part of this exciting project every dollar will help make it a reality. This is where you can help save our dolphins.
**Exciting news! - We have just received news that the Rotary Club of Mandurah will be contributing $2000 towards the community camera!**
This amount has been added to our running total above.
Thank you so much to Rotary Club of Mandurah ! Can we do this? YES!
