British Divers Marine Life Rescue
BDMLR is a fairly new charity, set up in 1988 by a group of divers who were concerned at their observations of the distemper virus in Britain’s wild seal populations. At the time, divers reported sick seals to the RSPCA. Recognising their unusually close encounters with marine mammals, and with many divers having an obvious concern for environmental issues, BDMLR was born. It now forms part of an international network of similar organisations.
