Based on the Isle of Mull, in the heart of the Hebrides, HWDT has been leading the way for the conservation of whales, dolphins and porpoises in the waters of western Scotland for over two decades. The recent upgrade to the survey equipment on board their research vessel sv Silurian and revision of the Whale Track app will allow them to extend their reach and efficacy.
In 2021/22 the marine element of the Nature Restoration Fund was administered by the SMEEF team. This enabled grants to reach more marine focused projects including HWDT.
