The Department of the Environment have acquired two new boats which will enable them to patrol and monitor British Gibraltar Territorial Waters. The main boat, a 10 metre cabin cruiser, has been named "Storm Petrel" after a species which inhabits the Straits and Mediterranean.
The other boat, named "Darwin" after the world famous biologist is a six metre RHIB. Both these boats will be utilised in the research and monitoring of the Southern Waters of Gibraltar Special Area of Conservation, as well as other marine sites around the Rock.
A team from the Department, made up of Environmental Protection Officers, Department Ecologists and their Diving Team, will be manning operations.
