Spring is here at the Scottish Dolphin Centre

Buttercups, snowdrops and dolphin sightings are out in Spey Bay

Our Scottish Dolphin Centre recently re-opened for the new season and our Shorewatch programme is gearing up for the months ahead.

It can mean only one thing: spring is finally here!

With opportunities to head outside, like the reopening of the centre and enjoy warmer weather, here are some essentials to make these new beginnings even more enjoyable.

Spring Greeting Cards

A UK spring in the natural world means fluffy babbers and what could be more appropriate than to celebrate Easter with one of these adorable duckling cards? If the ducklings aren’t your thing then choose from one of many others, including these creative daffodil prints or the sparkly hares, made with eco friendly glitter.

Eco-Chic Picnic Essentials

We are so thankful for the return of picnics! As it’s spring (and the UK) there is no guarantee that your non-waterproof blanket will hold up on potentially soggy ground. Eco Chic have a few solutions to this, from waterproof blankets to foldable lightweight cool bags. The blankets fold into their own handy carry cases, are even sand resistant and they’re made from recycled plastic bottles!


W'Zis? plant-based doggy treats

Want to feed your pooch but worried about the impact of your pet food on the planet? W’zis has a great solution – plant-based treats! Before you say ‘but they’re carnivores!’ W’zis treats are created to be appropriate for a doggy diet with a variety of nutritional needs.

The Carrot Who was Too Big for his Bed

This delightful story about a little carrot who grows so quickly he cant stay in his bed is a lovely introduction to gardening for children. The front and back covers are even plantable with the whole book having been printed on recycled paper and it comes with carrot seeds.
