About us

The Scottish Seabird Centre is a national conservation and education charity. Our purpose is to Inspire and educate people about the Scottish marine environment in ways which motivate them to care for it and to participate in conservation activities. Based in North Berwick, East Lothian we overlook the marine environment of the Firth of Forth and its internationally important breeding seabird colonies. We welcome over 160,000 visitors each year to our Centre.

You would be joining us at an exciting time as we develop a wider range of conservation, education and engagement activities that are delivered at the Centre and through our marine outreach and digital programmes. These activities are geared to contribute to cross-society efforts to improve ocean literacy and to tackle the twin nature and climate crises in ways that help Scotland’s seas to recover.

We have four key pillars to our work:

Our charitable work is supported by our not-for-profit Trading Company Scottish Seabird Centre Limited and our 5-star visitor attraction which provides a valuable resource for members and visitors.
