The best way to understand the Clyde environment is to come on our survey boat and experience it for yourself! We provide participants and wildlife enthusiasts with the opportunity to get out on the water and to explore the coastal and marine environment with us.
Marine Research Surveys
We provide opportunities to participate in marine mammal research and gain experience on visual and passive acoustic monitoring surveys. Participants become our marine mammal observers whilst also getting involved with every aspect of sailing the yacht during a survey expedition.
Clyde Community Sightings
The Clyde Community Sightings Network is a long term citizen science project that collects opportunistic sightings data. This data is being used to determine the status of our marine mammals and raise awareness of conservation issues. You can make a difference by reporting your sightings via our Online Sightings Form.
