Part of the World Wildlife Fund’s Dolphin Adoption funds go to support the Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust based at Tobermory on the Isle of Mull (where little ones might recognise the CBeebies series Balamory was filmed!). A new interactive display opens this June in the renovated visitor’s centre with amazing insights into whale and dolphin sightings. From May to October enthusiastic volunteers can join research yacht Silurian and become marine mammal scientists. Two surveys are for teenagers aged 16-17 and cost from £950. Find out more about whale watching trips in the area.
