WDC visit to your school:

Our education team also offers in-school workshops. A member of education team will visit your class to give an interactive PowerPoint workshop which includes:

  • Introduction to whales and dolphins along the East coast of Scotland
  • Life size material cut-outs of whales and dolphins
  • Real and replica whale and dolphin bones

We do not charge for WDC visits to your class. Donations are welcome.

‘I’m writing to say thank you for my amazing visit. I really enjoyed the Ice House because it was very interesting to see and learn about whale and dolphin bones. We all know that we should never drop the rubbish because it will harm the wildlife. You were very kind and helpful, thank you again.’ Portgordon Primary School P4/5 pupil
