Sea Champions to the rescue!

Scottish Sea Champions Matt and Sarah help rescue a stranded harbour porpoise. 

After completing a Seasearch survey dive in the Forth estuary on Saturday, Sea Champions Matt and Sarah weren't expecting to be back in the water so soon.

On Sunday, the duo received a call regarding a stranded harbour porpoise at Crombie Point.

Having recently completing training on how to rescue stranded marine animals, they were keen to offer their help, and were the first Marine Mammal Medics on the scene alongside the SSPCA Officer.

After a few hours in balmy 7 degree water, the Porpoise was rested and refloated before swimming away. Fingers crossed he makes it!

If you want to find out about becoming a Marine Mammal Medic please check out the British Divers Marine Life Rescue website.
