For the past decade volunteers, youth groups and school pupils have been monitoring and gaining knowledge about the spectacular marine environment off the west coast of Scotland on expeditions aboard the Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust’s (HWDT) flagship vessel Silurian. Now, the education work on-board has been recognised by the National Lottery Good Causes Awards, being shortlisted as a finalist in the Education category.
But, the winner will be based on votes cast so HWDT needs you to vote to have any chance of winning.
Education Officer Gemma Paterson said: “We’re honoured to be the only Scottish project in the running for Best Education Project at the National Lottery Awards. The funding we received from the National Lottery has allowed us to enthuse and educate people of all ages, instilling a sense of environmental responsibility and commitment to the protection of the marine environment in the Hebrides.”
