cetacean surveying opportunity

A little while ago I got permission from Carl Milne of Stena Line to put a caravan on the Pebbly Beach site. land that Stena owns and which has restricted access.
The purpose is to allow our volunteers the possibility of surveying the Fishguard Bay on a hourly basis from eight am to six pm as often as possible. One of the problems we have encountered in the past is finding accommodation for volunteers wanting to help us. We paid £1200 for the caravan so need to recoup some cost but we think the opportunity to spend time in such an idyllic setting watching wildlife having been being trained to do so would be worth £20 per night.
The caravan is apparently a five berth but would probably be more comfortable for a couple or perhaps two or three friends.
To be allowed here is an immense privilege and whoever comes must respect that privilege and the sanctity and serenity of this magical setting.
We would expect that those taking advantage of this offer would diligently follow the survey routine and protocols, keep the caravan clean and leave it in a pleasant condition for those who follow them.
It is not a party venue but I am sure those taking advantage of this wonderful opportunity will respect the surrounding wildlife and enjoy the tranquility of this unique corner of Pembrokeshire...
