After training, our members are ready to assist with whale rescues at any time of the day. Some rescues occur in isolated locations and extend over a number of days, so members in this group should be prepared to travel to the Devonport area, in a self sufficient manner, possibly for an extended period of time.

Whale Rescue First Response Team – Devonport was formed following a training course for volunteers.

Parks and Wildlife Service will be in contact with members in the event of a stranding in the local area.

Volunteers who have undertaken the traqining course will be contacted first.
