Scottish Marine Animal Stranding Scheme, Northern Hub
This project will renovate a facility close to Inverness to support marine strandings investigation work in the Highlands and Island region. The ‘northern hub’ will support the work done by the Glasgow Vet School as part of the Scottish Marine Animals Stranding Scheme (SMASS).
In 2022/23 the marine element of the Nature Restoration Fund was administered by the SMEEF team. This enabled grants to reach more marine focused projects including SMASS.
