WDC’s Scottish Dolphin Centre welcomes five new volunteers

Rieka, Johann, Jaye-lea, Emma and Matthew

WDC’s Scottish Dolphin Centre welcomed a wonderful group of new volunteers this week who will spend most of 2019 helping to run the Centre’s daily visitor tours and wildlife walks, as well as delivering WDC’s education, Shorewatch and events programmes.

The new volunteers will spend their first month training and learning more about WDC, the wildlife and marine life found in the area around Spey Bay, and finding out what it is like to work for a leading global marine conservation charity and also for a major tourist destination in Scotland, which welcomes over 90,000 visitors through its doors every year.

From left to right, we would like to introduce: Rieka, Johann, Jaye-lea, Emma and Matthew who will be residential volunteers at our Centre at Spey Bay for the 2019 season.

The successful running of the Centre is only possible with the help of our team of volunteers, who also help promote WDC’s campaigns. They will run plastic workshops, raising awareness of plastic pollution, our #NotWhaleFood project.

If you are planning to visit the Spey Bay area in Scotland why not pop into the Scottish Dolphin Centre and say ‘hello’ to the team. Learn more at https://dolphincentre.whales.org/.
