WDC is engaging communities of Scotland in conservation research and awareness

The objective of the WDC Shorewatch Programme is for partner groups and community volunteers to become stewards of whales, dolphins and the marine habitat in which they live.

Shorewatch is a local community and volunteer led initiative with volunteers carrying out shorewatches for the programme at designated local sites with access provided by partner groups.

We are extremely grateful for their involvement - by joining the programme our volunteers and partners are actively contributing to the protection of whales, dolphins, porpoises and their environment across in Scotland.
