Protect Scotland's Whales And Dolphins
The Scottish government are currently asking the public what they think about its plans to make marine protected areas in the Scottish seas. These are a little like nature reserves on land where species within the reserve are protected.
However, the plans at the moment don’t make sure that there will be safe homes for whales and dolphins. So WDC has asked supporters to send letters to the government asking them to make sure whales and dolphins are included in their final decision.
In one week, over 5000 members of the public sent letters, helping the campaign to ensure whales and dolphins in Scottish waters are safer – we hope this will make a big difference to the Scottish government’s plans, and that many creatures will be better off as a result.
