Dr Emilie Praca speaks at the European Cetacean Society Conference in Liege
- Emilie presented the results of the marine mammal monitoring undertaken during the different phases of the Sheringham Shoal offshore wind farm. Analysis showed decreasing abundance of Harbour porpoise and Harbour seal during periods of piling. By contrast Grey seal abundance increased year on year. All species were more abundant after construction compared to baseline and pre-construction periods. We are planning to publish the results of the study very soon.
