British Divers Marine Life Rescue is to hold its Conference on June 4th 2011 in Bristol.

The BDMLR get-together was originally scheduled for December 2010, but was postponed due to bad weather.

Formed in 1988, British Divers Marine Life Rescue is a charitable organisation tasked with helping distressed marine mammals.

Predominantly tasked with helping seals, the volunteers have found themselves increasingly called to deal with cetaceans, including whales and dolphins.

The charity trains more than 400 Marine Mammal Medics every year. Tickets for the BDMLR Conference go on sale from April 1st, and cost 10 pounds each.

A diverse roster of speakers includes Shawn Clements of RSPCA Wildlife, WDCS Dolphin Field Officer Charlie Phillips, and Matt Slater, curator of the Newquay Blue Reef Aquarium.

The British Divers Marine Life Rescue Conference will kick off at the South Bristol Sports Centre on June 4th.
