Spey Bay Eco Festival and Environment Week!

WDCS, the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society, is celebrating Scottish Environment Week with a week of exciting activities culminating on Saturday 21st February with an Eco Festival. WDCS is inviting people of all ages to become involved in the week’s events at their Wildlife Centre in Spey Bay.

Date:                Saturday 21st February
Time:                10.30pm – 4:30pm
Venue:             WDCS Wildlife Centre, Spey Bay

Everyone is welcome to take part in the Eco Festival, which will include a beach clean and also features storytellers and a display of artwork by local children. Visitors will be able to find out about the special bottlenose dolphins of the north east coast of Scotland, and get tips on how to be more eco-friendly. The dolphins have already been seen three times this year from the Wildlife Centre, so there’s even a chance visitors will be able to spot them too!

The WDCS Wildlife Centre exhibition, newly refurbished gift shop and café will all be open, and everyone will be welcome to have a walk around the stunning wildlife reserve.

In the week leading up to the Eco Festival, from Monday 16th to Friday 20th February there will be an exciting range of daily events, from 1-3pm, for children to become involved in and learn more about the local environment and wildlife through exciting activities and games.

Katy Norbury, Scottish Education Volunteer for WDCS said: “The Eco Festival is a great way to start the year with ideas on how you can help the environment through fun games and activities and help to keep our coasts clean by getting involved in the beach clean. Spey Bay is a stunning area rich in wildlife, and a great place to teach everyone about the importance of the world around us, and where we can work directly to help look after this important marine environment.”

Booking is essential for the activities Monday-Friday, and all children must be accompanied by an adult. Entry is free to the Spey bay Eco Festival.
