Cetecean Research and Rescue Unit (CRRU)
The Cetacean Research and Rescue Unit (CRRU) is a small non-profit research organisation based in North East Scotland dedicated to the welfare, conservation and protection of whales, dolphins and porpoises (cetaceans) through scientific investigation, environmental education, and the provision of a 24-hour veterinary service for sick, injured and stranded individuals.
The CRRU’s scientific research provides baseline data for the adoption of long term management measures and conservation strategies for the protection of UK cetaceans.
The CRRU also operates the only specialist response team of marine mammal researchers in Scotland dedicated specifically to live-stranded whales and dolphins in trouble.
LOVEmyBEACH is a campaign with a huge challenge: to work together to keep our local beaches and bathing waters clean. You don’t have to live by the sea to make a difference – wherever you live, work, visit in the North West.
The Wildlife Ark Trust
The Wildlife Ark Trust is commited to the conservation of two of our most threatened native animals - the red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris), and the water vole (Arvicola terrestris). The Wildlife Ark Trust is in favour of any conservation measure that will help the red squirrel and the water vole such as habitat management, supplementary feeding, scientific research etc. but we believe that the control of alien pest species’ numbers must be a priority. We also support the view that the immediate development of a vaccine to combat the effects of the squirrelpox virus in the red squirrels is vital.
Beautiful Gardens Inspired by Nature. Experienced landscape gardeners based in Exeter, Devon. Owner of Living Landscapes (and founder of WildAid) Jonathon Hodges has been involved in landscaping for over twenty five years since he built a wildlife park in his early twenties in Staffordshire, where he grew up. In the development of the park he created and constructed enclosures in a steep wooded valley which gave the animals and birds in his care a home in a near natural environment. Jonny has always been passionate about animals and working with nature, which led him to set up WildAid in 1994.
