Trustees & Science Committee

Board of Trustees

The Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust is a registered charity in Scotland. Its Board of Trustees are made up of experts from the scientific community, third sector, media, and business sectors. Together they bring a wealth of expert knowledge and experience to the organisation. HWDT trustees are volunteers and meet regularly to set the direction of the Trust’s operations.

Chairperson: Denis Mollison

 

Science Committee

HWDT is privileged to have an advisory board of professional scientists that are able to provide guidance on all of the Trust’s science and policy work. The Science Committee is composed of researchers that have been involved in the Trust since the start, as well as past members of the science team. Between them they represent all major research institutions working on cetaceans in Scotland. The Science Committee provides HWDT with continuity in its research, as well as expert scientific advice, which is critical to the maintenance of the long-term Silurian monitoring programme and the credibility of HWDTs research.

Chairperson: Jonathan Gordon
