Whale Week Festival 

When: From June 8th to 15th

Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust announce a new annual week-long festival to be launched on World Oceans Day on 8 June, in what is believed to be the first event of its kind in Scotland.

Humpback whales, orcas and bottlenose dolphins will take over Tobermory on the Isle of Mull between 8-15 June 2014, as conservation charity Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust (HWDT) celebrates its 20th anniversary with its first Whale Week.
A wide range of activities and events will be on offer and HWDT hopes that the festival will inspire the local community, schools and tourists to help ensure the long-term survival of these remarkable marine creatures.
So far 24 cetacean species – including several national and international conservation priorities – have been recorded in the region.
