Jail Warnings Over Harassing Cornwall's Marine Life
8:02am 24th August 2014
There is a warning people who harass dolphins or basking sharks off the Cornish coast could end up in prison.
Wildlife experts are worried some people are getting too close when they are spotted off our coast.
Because they are a protected species the maximum sentence is six months inside and a £5000 fine.
It is as more boats take to the water over the summer.
Abbey Crosby is from Cornwall Wildlife Trust, she wants us to enjoy the sightings but take care.
She said: "They are intelligent animals, they do like to interact at points with people, and you will find them following boats, some investigating kayakers and so on, but it must be on their terms.
"A lot of these animals are rare, or they are declining in numbers, they are protected under UK law, and therefore we must ensure that when we are in the marine environment with them, and we are watching them, we must do so in a way that doesn't harm them."8:02am 24th August 2014
