The Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust (HWDT) kicks off the weekend of events on Friday evening, to explore the science behind the research which has contributed so much to the On Sonorous Seas project. Learn all about the research collected on board HWDT’s research vessel, Silurian, how the underwater soundscape is monitored and what impact this data is making to ensure whales, dolphins and porpoises are protected and valued in the marine environment on the west coast of Scotland.
