Shiver me timbers! Pirate Day is back at the Scottish Seabird Centre on Saturday 12th October.

Inspired by the link between Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island and the nearby island of Fidra, Pirate Day is a swashbuckling fun event celebrating the high seas. Don’t miss one of the highlights in the charity’s events calendar as the rip-roaring fun returns. With treasures to seek and games to play, you won’t want to miss it!  All included with admission to the Discovery Centre and free for members.

Further events this autumn include two inspiring talks in the ‘Meet the Scientist’ series. On 15th October, Phil Taylor, a Trustee for the charity will introduce ‘Open Seas’, an organisation campaigning for healthier seas and more sustainable seafood. Phil will talk through the history of Scotland’s seas, the challenges it has faced and the potential for its future. Catherine Gemmell, from the Marine Conservation Society introduces the second talk ‘Stop the Plastic Tide’, on 7th November. This fantastic presentation aims to inspire some ocean optimism about what is happening to our blue planet and what steps we can take to protect it. 

The Discovery Centre will be closing on 22nd October this year for the second phase of their exciting refurbishment and it is scheduled to re-open at the end of December. The Seabird Café and gift shop will remain open throughout the refurbishment programme.
