Who We Are

The Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust (HWDT) is a small charity based in Tobermory on the Isle of Mull, Scotland. We employ six permanent Members of Staff and several seasonal employees, making us one of the largest employers on Mull and Iona and a significant contributor to the local economy.  HWDT is also grateful to a number of long-term and seasonal Volunteers.

HWDT is well-supported by a full Board of Directors and represented by our Patrons. HWDT's departments benefit greatly from the knowledge and experience of our Scientific, Education and Boat Committees.
