  • 4. • Interest in Marine Biology.• Not a widely discussed topic.• Little known due to lack of public attention.
  • 5. • Strandings involve dead or alive animals, caused by different reasons.• Occur by accident or due to illness, injury or death.• Human contributions are to a large scale.• Aware of the apparent increase in strandings.
  • 6. • Sociable strandings occur.• Not many people are aware of strandings even though there seems to be increased media coverage.• “Fishies Royal”• Continuous increase in contributors to strandings
  • 7. Journals Such as: • The Possible Impacts Of Military Activity On Cetacean In West ScotlandBooks Such as: • The Mystery of Whale Strandings: A Cause and Effect Investigation by Jody Sullivan • The Whale Scientists: Solving the Mystery of Whale Strandings by Fran HodgkinsWebsites such as: • Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust • Uk Strandings • Natural History Museum

  • 10. • Limited access to information – Ample information and new sources found.• Lack of availability of people to interview and meet – Try and contact people through email/telephone for those unable to meet.• Time Management – Developed a study/work plan and prioritised work.• Research techniques – Looked at research methods and picked one that suited me.
