Expeditions to study the health of whales in Hebridean waters

THE Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust has announced details of its 2018 surveys, in which volunteers and marine scientists will carry out pioneering research into the health of whales, dolphins and porpoises off Scotland’s west coast.

The trust has been collecting data on cetaceans – the collective name for whales, dolphins and porpoises – from its specialised research yacht Silurian for 15 years.
