I have pleasure introducing a guest blog from María Gunnarsdóttir, Project Manager for IceWhale, the Icelandic Whale Watching Association, which promotes whale watching and whale conservation. María was personally involved in the successful mission during mid-August to free ‘Nettie’ the humpback whale found badly entangled in Faxafloi Bay, Reykjavik, Iceland.
Ask anyone and they’ll tell you that Scotland has been having a dismal summer this year, low temperatures and rain and wind galore.
Red is often a colour associated with danger or concern, but here at the Dolphin Centre when we see a “Red Day” on our rota, the opposite is true. That’s because a red day means activity day – for one whole day we get to put our creative minds to good use and hang out with visitors doing something fun. What’s not to like?!

The Scottish Dolphin Centre was swarming with little pirates last Sunday as we invited everyone to join the Spey Bay crew for Pirate Day! We honestly hadn’t anticipated for so many visitors to come and answer our call. What an amazing little festival!
Three killer whales have been captured in the Okhotsk Sea in the Russian Far East, according to FEROP sources. The first one, captured in early July, was moved through Sakhalinsky Bay on July 15, 2015. Since then, two more have been captured, also thought to have been caught in Sakhalinsky Bay.
As some of you may or may not know, every Wednesday of the school holidays the Scottish Dolphin Centre has a kids club from 2-4pm. Every year they are very popular with them being fully booked every week. As a charity one of our main objectives is to educate, however with wildlife warriors our main goal is for the kids to have as much fun as possible.
