Protect Our Dolphins is our campaign to protect the dolphins that live in Scotland’s Moray Firth.
These dolphins face a broad range of threats: activities such as oil and gas exploration and production, large marina development, chemical pollution, fisheries interactions and more are increasingly putting pressure on the dolphins and their environment.
Yet, in spite of evidence that the population may be in decline, little is being done to protect this unique, vulnerable and important group of animals.
Our vision is that the whales and dolphins of the Moray Firth, including the bottlenose dolphins, will survive and in due course thrive in a clean and safe environment.
The push to persuade the government to keep oil and gas out of the SAC is of course, urgent. But it is only the start of our campaign. These dolphins face many threats and to achieve our vision we will need to engage in a broad range of activities.
