The National Aquarium, Atlantaquaria in Salthill, played host to another multi-skilled group of volunteers who gathered to learn the skills of First Responders and join the National team who will be on a database and notified in the event of a spill. With the Atlantic ocean just across the road and a wonderful display of its inhabitants inside the aquarium we had a strong reminder of just how tragic and destructive even a small spill could be

Thanks again to the Irish Coast Guard for their sponsorship of the day and to Galway Atlantaquaria for hosting the training and making us so welcome.
