Our outreach programme focuses on engaging new audiences and connecting more people to our wonderful marine environment.

With our seas facing ever worsening threats, it’s now more important than ever for people to be aware of these issues and feel a connection to the environment, even when it’s not on their doorstep.

The job of the Outreach team is to bring the sea to those that aren’t in the position to access it themselves – to provide an opportunity for everyone to engage with the Scottish marine environment and access marine educational resources wherever, and whoever, they might be.

We achieve this by building on the high-quality learning experiences already delivered at the centre and spreading them across Scotland.Wherever we go, we boost awareness of our wonderful marine life, increase the appreciation of its importance, and inspire as many people as we can to protect it.

Outreach opportunities for various audiences include:
