Whatever the weather, the Scottish Seabird Centre is the ideal family escape this winter
Dive-in to their Discovery Experience and learn more about Scotland’s incredible marine environment, brought to life through fun, interactive exhibits, games, 3D films, wildlife trails and virtual reality experience. Keep an eye on the Bass Rock from the remote cameras to spot the return of the gannets in February.
Thanks to VisitScotland’s Great Days Out campaign, visitors can enjoy up to 50% off entry to the Discovery Experience (until 18 February 2022). So book soon to make the most of this amazing offer for the start of the school holidays.
Family and individual memberships allow unlimited visits throughout the year, ideal if you want to learn more about the seasonal wildlife, including iconic species such as grey seals, puffins, gannets and bottlenose dolphins. Becoming a member helps support the charity’s vital conservation and education activities and opens up a host of exclusive member benefits.
Details of the newly launched ‘Seabird Socials’, an exciting programme of events and exhibitions, the dates for their fun-filled holiday clubs and upcoming wildlife walks can all be found on their website’s what’s on page.
If doing more for nature is on your 2022 to-do list, there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer. The Centre has partnered with Keep Scotland Beautiful to become a community clean-up hub. They now host new litter picking equipment that individuals and groups can borrow to help them tackle litter in the local area and clear the coastline of potentially harmful rubbish. In addition, you could get involved in monitoring cetaceans at the new Whale and Dolphin Conservation Shorewatch site or join the core volunteer team at the Centre to help engage more people with the local wildlife.
