The WDC Shorewatch Programme supports volunteer citizen scientists to monitor the presence and absence of coastal cetaceans over time by conducting effort-based watches from shore at specified local sites around Scotland. Volunteers have been carrying out Shorewatches from the Scottish Dolphin Centre in Spey Bay since 2005, and consistently from sites around the wider Moray Firth since 2010.
