The Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust - May visit

Title: The Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust - May visit
Posted by: Conor Ryan on 04-05-2015

Discussion: The Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust will visit the Outer Hebrides (and Gairloch and Canna) during May as part of SeaChange: an education, outreach and research project which aims to promote whales, dolphins and porpoises as an important part of the natural heritage of the Hebrides. We hope to meet with all those interested in marine mammals, and those who are employed in the whale-watch tourism sector. We will also be visiting schools along our route to deliver educational talks and workshops to primary and secondary school students. There will be a series of illustrated presentations about the natural history of whales and dolphins of the Hebrides and recent research findings by HWDT, at six locations (see below). These are free events and all are welcome to join! Booking not essential.

We are also looking for a local ambassador at each location to act as a liaison for HWDT in their locality. This will be a voluntary role, it will not involve a lot work and we will provide some resources. If you are keen or know someone that is, please reply to this email.

I hope to meet you at one of our events:
