Help Protect Scotland's Whales & Dolphins !

Hi Everyone, I was through at our Scottish Dolphin Centre on Tuesday taking some launch photos for our Marine Protected Areas campaign that starts this week. Photobucket©WDCS/Charlie Phillips Protecting the places where whales and dolphins live is vital to ensuring their future. WDCS’s goal is to help design and create large ‘safe havens’ or Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) which protect critical habitat for vulnerable and endangered populations like Minke whales and Risso’s dolphins in the Hebridean waters of Scotland. Please help us by signing our online petition HERE In the photo from left to right is Rob Ward, our Centre Co-ordinator at Spey Bay, Alison Jordan, our Scottish Education and Outreach Officer and last but not least, Margaret Dearman, one of our wonderful local volunteers. One of our very funky inflatable Risso’s dolphins is having a wee rest on the grass posing for the camera. Best Wishes, Charlie
