BDMLR was formed in 1988 in response to the mass mortality of Harbour seals in the Wash area of East Anglia.
From these early beginnings, when a few like minded divers got together to help marine wildlife, a committed 24 hr rescue service has grown.
Marine Animal Rescue Ambulances are sited throughout thr UK ready to be sent to an incident.
We have three rigid inflatable boats (RIBs) one in the South of England, one in the Midlands and one in the far North of Scotland.
Our teams of volunteers regularly train to refresh rescue techniques and meet socially to keep in touch with each other and raise funds.
