Brighton Dolphin Project & Royal Pavilion & Museums launched a drawing competition to celebrate the launch of the OceanBlues website and National Marine Week.
The competition was to draw any of our six Sussex marine mammals. We had lots of fantastic entries but our two winners were:
Up to 6 years: Austin Kempton aged 6, from Hove
7-12 years: Arlo Kempton from Hove
Well done guys!
The White-Beaked Dolphin is a robust species of dolphin with a short beak. Adults can reach 2.3 to 3.1 m (7 ft 7 in to 10 ft 2 in) long and weigh 180 to 354 kg (397 to 780 lb).
Did you know?
Each jaw of the White-beaked dolphin holds 22-28 pairs of small, conical-shaped teeth, which help the animal easily grasp prey. Fishermen in Canada call this dolphin ‘Squidhound’.
