Kids help rescue dolphin

Children at the Kidz@Play Club in Peterhead carried out a sea rescue mission last week.
The youngsters helped British Deep Sea Marine Rescue crew to save an inflatable whale that had become trapped at the club.

As well as carrying out the rescue operation the kids were also given instruction on how to deal with all manner of sea life that can be found in the local area.

The day's activity is designed to help children appreciate local marine wildlife and to develop a passion and a love for it. Kidz@Play Out of School Club provides before and after school care for children aged 3 to 16 years old.

Clare Melvin (12) said: "We have learned how to save and rescue whales, dolphins and seals. It has been good fun and we have learned a lot."
