The Clyde Marine Mammal Project is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation focused on the research and conservation of marine species, running an ongoing study of marine mammals in the Clyde Sea. This project aims to obtain baseline information on species occurrence, behavior, and social structure of the local marine mammal populations in order to obtain scientific data to support conservation measures and inform marine management policies.

Our Aims:

  • To develop a monitoring and survey strategy to better understand the distribution and abundance of cetaceans and marine animals in the Clyde and surrounding seas.
  • To involve the public, raise awareness and understanding of marine mammals, their conservation status  and threats they face.
  • Educate, inform and advise for better environmental protection while developing  working relationships with existing stakeholders that use the Clyde.
