Kess Comes Home…

Hi Everyone,

If you are anywhere near Inverness between the 8th of this month and the 6th of October I think that you will like this exhibition. Kess (Kesslets mum and Charlies Grandmother) was a very special dolphin – very close to my heart and to be able to see the old girl again albeit only her skeleton is a very special and rare opportunity…plus there are some okay dolphin photos as well ! This exhibition is the brainchild of my colleague and all round lovely person Elsa Panciroli who many of you will know from our Dolphin & Seal Centre at North Kessock and a special mention goes out to Velocity Design of Inverness for giving WDCS a big discount in the printing costs of the exhibition photographs.

So please come along – it would be great to see you.

Message from Elsa…

Thank you Charlie 🙂

It’s also worth mentioning that one of the pictures featured in the exhibition – a real stunning close-up of Charlie the calf – is being sold by silent auction at Waterstones Bookstore in the Eastgate Centre in Inverness.
All proceeds go right back into WDCS’s conservation work.
The auction ends on the 6th of October and the winner will be announced soon afterwards.-Elsa

Best Wishes,

Charlie.
