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.
Resident volunteers join us on a full-time basis for either 6 months, 4 months or 7 weeks. The 6 month placement runs between March and September, the 4 month between June and September and the 7 week placement runs from September to November. This is not a rolling programme where volunteers come and go. It is for a fixed period of time and is subject to change.
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.
What’s in it for you?
The length of your placement will determine which activities you have time to take part in.
