Volunteering

Volunteer at the Centre

The successful running of our Centre is only possible with the help of our team of volunteers. Whether it’s just a few hours a week, a specific skill or becoming a residential intern for the season, there’s bound to be something you can help with, and all in an amazing environment.

There are lots of ways you can help out at the Scottish Dolphin Centre by volunteering:

Leading tours, dolphin watching, shop work, gardening, handy person, events, school talks, face-painting, photography and much more! Plus you don’t have to be a dolphin expert, we give you all the training you need.

Residential interns

Resident volunteers join us on a full-time basis between March and October. Roles are advertised on our website in December.

Volunteers are an essential part of the WDC Scotland team and play a vital role in our work. Your hard work and support help towards our vision of a world where every whale and dolphin is safe and free.
