An Ideal Christmas Present

Seasons Greetings from a chilly North Kessock in Scotland – although I personally have a nice warm glow inside as I was watching WDC Adopt a Dolphin star “Kesslet” this morning with her little baby, only four months old and having great fun with big brother “Charlie” – the three dolphins were in the Kessock Channel so very local to me. Sundance has been near Chanonry Point too so there are at least two out of the four beautiful, bouncing Bottlenose dolphins that you can adopt with us in this area at the moment. Adopting an individual dolphin with WDC provides us with the means to protect their home and their future plus it supports our efforts to educate and inform visitors and locals about how these sentient, highly intelligent beings are a vitally important part of the Moray Firth ecosystem. The six gorgeous dolphins that you can adopt are shown in the photo montage below – top row (left to right) are Spirit, Moonlight and Sundance then on the bottom row we have (left to right) Mischief, Kesslet and Rainbow. We also have an on-line shop for a wide range of unique and thoughtful gifts and you can also support us by making a donation 

Please have a safe and happy festive season and I hope to keep you up to date with what the dolphins are getting up to after the holiday period  – Best Wishes from Charlie & all at WDC
