The Hebridean Whales and Dolphin Trust (HWDT) is currently offering a
limited number of volunteer  positions for the Summer starting IMMEDIATELY.

HWDT is a charitable organisation dedicated to education and the research of
whales and dolphins in the waters of Western Scotland. The Hebridean region
possesses the greatest abundance of cetaceans in British waters, with
records of 19 species, of which 8 species are seen regularly. The Hebrides
are also inhabited by otters and two species of seal.

One of the trust's aims is to allow environmentalists to be able to gain
research experience in an extremely competitive field.

Volunteers are expected to be enthusiastic, self-reliant and interested in
communicating with the public. It would be beneficial for them to possess
some knowledge of biology (ideally to degree level) or have
computing/marketing/educational experience.

The volunteers will be expected to spend half their working week on working
in the Trust's education centre, whilst the remainder will be spent
conducting individual research/educational projects or assisting other trust
members with established projects.

The positions are purely  voluntary to begin with. Volunteers will also be
expected to pay for their own accommodation (up to #50/week), food and
travel to the Hebrides.

Interested parties should e-mail ( giving a summary
of their relevant experience, the reasons why they would be suitable for the
position and give a daytime (GMT) telephone number. Interested parties can
also telephone the Trust's offices for further information: 44+(0)1688
