A group campaigning for marine conservation and sustainable use of the sea has just become a Scottish registered charity.
Friends of the Sound of Jura, formed in 2017, relies on a hardworking team of volunteers and is continually looking for more people to help.
Skills in demand are media, applying for grants, project management, photography, marine science and education.
‘You can get involved on many levels – whether you want to do some desk research or campaigning from home. You don’t have to be on the shores of the Sound of Jura to get involved!’ said a group spokesperson.
A volunteer is also needed to co-ordinate regular beach cleaning anywhere
there is access to the shoreline on both sides of the Sound of Jura as well as Loch Sween.
Anyone who would like to get involved with surveying the area’s seabed should also get in touch.
