Help Scotland's Whales And Dolphins

The Scottish Government is putting steps in place to protect the amazing marine life around its coast. The government will be creating a network of ‘marine protected areas’. These are parts of the ocean where human activities that might harm wildlife are restricted. These protected areas are a bit like ‘nature reserves’ on land.

It should be great news, but there is a risk that whales, dolphins and porpoises may be left out and will not be properly protected.

You can help by signing our simple petition asking the government to protect whales and dolphins too, and telling your family and friends about it.

Thank you!
