The research conducted under the cetacean stranding investigation programme continues to provide insight into the diseases, health status and threats to cetaceans and marine turtles in UK waters. Such a systematic and long-term monitoring programme of stranded animals facilitates the investigation of spatio-temporal trends in disease, causes of mortality and exposure to environmental pollutants largely inaccessible by other methods. It also enables both ongoing assessment of the dynamics of particular threats and their response to specific conservation measures. This is a birds eye view timelapse of the procedure of a Common dolphin and seal pup Dissection undertaken at Exeter University, Cornwall Campus by veterinarian Rob Deaville and James Barnett.
