Events

At the Scottish Seabird Centre we have a varied programme of events on throughout the year.

Self-led beach cleans

30 - 24 June 2022

If you can't make it to one of our social beach cleans (or if you prefer to carryout your clean-ups solo), you can borrow a beach-clean kit from the Scottish Seabird Centre every Friday between 10.00 and 16.00. Volunteering your time to clean-up the coastline is a great way to help improve marine habitats and protect wildlife.

Coastal Wildlife Walks

16 September - 22 October 2021

Join our Conservation Officer for a relaxing 1.5 hour wildlife walk along the coast to find out more about the seabirds, shorebirds, and cetaceans that can be spotted around Scotland during the Spring and Summer months. Learn more about citizen science surveys, why they’re important, and how you can get involved in collecting data to safeguard wildlife and marine habitats. Everyone is welcome to ask questions, share their knowledge and experiences, or simply unwind and enjoy the wildlife. Booking essential.

Beach Clean Forum

5 October 2021

Join us to share your beach clean experiences and hear from some of the inspirational organisations and individuals dedicated to keeping the Scottish coastline clean for people and the environment. This is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to find out more about local pollution projects and discover how to get involved in litter-picks or beach cleans in your local patch.

Great Global Nurdle Hunt

9 October 2021

Beach cleans aren't the only thing you can do to protect marine habitats from pollution! The Great Nurdle Hunt is a citizen science engagement project run by the charity Fidra, that aims to raise awareness of plastic pellet (nurdle) pollution and build evidence about this problem globally. Join our Conservation Officer to undertake a group nurdle hunt, while enjoying some amazing marine wildlife with like-minded people.
