This quarter (July – September 2017) we supported the Hebridean Whale & Dolphin Trust.

The Hebridean Whale & Dolphin Trust has been leading the way for the conservation of whales, dolphins and porpoises in the Hebrides for over two decades. HWDT research has critically advanced the understanding of the whale and dolphin populations that visit seasonally or are resident within Scotland’s west coast seas.

Based on the Isle of Mull, in the heart of the Hebrides, HDWT works directly with local communities to ensure whales, dolphins and porpoises are protected and valued throughout Scotland’s west coast. Each year their specialist research vessel, Silurian, travels thousands of nautical miles, monitoring Hebridean seas, to increase our understanding of cetaceans and the threats they face, and bringing marine education to life through their unique floating classroom.

Our donation will enable HWDT to upgrade computer equipment for use in education work with remote island schools and the engagement programme at the Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Centre.
