    Keith Buchanan (

Keith was drawn to Dingle, Ireland, from South Africa via London, in the early 90s by a dolphin.  Led by a feeling that more was being communicated than understood in dolphin-human interactions, he wanted to explore this a bit more with Fungie the Dingle Dolphin.   Now,  15 years later, he still lives in Dingle with his wife Julie and 3 young children. 

With the belief that the dolphin interaction phenomenon is an opportunity for us to re-forge our links with nature, the sea and dolphins, he successfully started up with Graham Timmins.

The principle behind is to chart the interaction between humans and the dolphins in Ireland that have chosen to interact with us. also attempts to redress the imbalance of opinion created by sensationalist reporting in the media on those interactions.

Keith works as an IT consultant specialising in internet-based information technology.
Website is dedicated to giving accurate information about 'friendly' or sociable wild dolphins (and whales) around the coastal waters of Ireland - i.e., those cetaceans who from time to time choose to interact with humans.. Dolphins include Fungie the Dingle Dolphin, Dony and Dusty.
