What krakens lie beneath? A Guide to UK Cephalopods

Dive South will be hosting an evening Talk by DR Gavan Cooke...

As some of you may know I had a recent encounter with my first octopus in the Uk in 13 years of diving and the largest I have seen anywhere to date. So naturally that led me to Gavan as we were both interested to find out more about the incredible species of Cephalopods we have on our doorstep.

Thanks to the many BBC documentaries nearly all of us are familiar with exotic octopuses, maybe even cuttlefish and squid too. Fewer of us realise that what we see in these exotic locations can be found around the UK coast, and often in only a few meters of water.
In some ways scientists know great deal about some of the cephalopods (the taxonomic name for all the alien like squishy animals we marvel at). UK scientists have won the Nobel prize for their work on the Giant Squid physiology and we know in intricate detail how cephalopods change colour so rapidly. However, we know very, very little about their behaviour in the wild.
The Facebook group I created was designed to change this, by encouraging citizens to become scientists we are finally learning what motivates these amazing animals, what they do with their time and how they do it. This talk shares details of UK cephalopods, from the extinct to the living, what you as citizen scientists have helped discover and what you can do to further help us understand these complex, intelligence and sentient animals.

The talk will be around 1-1.5hrs with time for Q&A afterwards and I am sure a trip to the pub afterwards could be on the cards:)
All welcome, divers and non divers, all dive clubs welcome:) The more the merrier! please share away and please say you are "going" in the event in order for me to get an idea on numbers.

Gavan is giving up his time, so it makes sense to put on one event in each area as something tells me he is going to be in demand.

Rescue Diver Course - Confined Sessions
Rescue Diver Course - Confined Sessions

Friday 14th September 2018, 18:15 - Friday 21st September 2018, 21:45

People who have completed the Rescue Diver course will tell you it's the best course that they have done, and that perhaps more than any other certification to date, they felt like they had earned it by the end of the course. Challenging and rewarding best describes the course, but at the same time your diving will be transformed.

You'll learn to look beyond yourself and consider the safety and well being of other divers. It's a great way to build your confidence. Rescue diver training will prepare you to prevent problems and if necessary manage emergencies.

You'll cover topics such as self-rescue and diver stress, emergency management and equipment, panicked diver responses, in water rescue breathing protocols, removing an injured diver from the the water and then how to put it all into practice in some dive accident scenarios.

In September, we run the course on Fridays the 14th and 21st for pool sessions (with the 28th available for any further work required), and then put everything into practice in open water on the 29th and 30th.
