Help secure future of whales

Conservation charity Hebridean Whale & Dolphin Trust is recruiting volunteers from across the UK to join its 2015 marine research expeditions, onboard specialised yacht Silurian – previously used in the filming of the BBC’s The Blue Planet.

Volunteers will work alongside marine scientists in the only scheme of its type in the country – developing skills, conducting pioneering citizen science and exploring Britain’s wild and remote corners.

Such surveys have discovered that Hebridean waters are home to the UK’s smallest known resident population of bottlenose dolphins and only known resident group of killer whales.

This research off western Scotland is an excellent opportunity to help secure the future of whales, dolphins, porpoises and basking sharks. For details and costs, please contact us on 01688 302620, email info@hwdt.org or visit www.hwdt.org.
