In a recent newsletter, WDCS (Whale & Dolphin Conservation Society), revealed that the UK government has agreed to allow two companies to begin seismic surveys for oil and gas in the Moray Firth in September. One of these companies will be operating inside the Special Area of Conservation – a sanctuary, created by the government to protect the bottlenose dolphins. WDCS has been looking after the welfare of dolphins in the Moray Firth through its POD (Protect Our Dolphins) campaign.
As Sarah Dolman, WDCS Head of Policy for Scotland said in the newsletter: “In September, WDCS Patron and presenter of BBC’s Coast and the One Show, Miranda Krestovnikoff will be jumping out of a plane at 10,000ft to raise money for our Protect Our Dolphins campaign – please sponsor her”.
Please follow the link to Miranda’s ‘Just Giving’ Page if you would like to make a donation, helping her campaign reach the £7000 target.
